5x+16 greater than 1 and 2x21 greater than 17.

5x + 16 > 1
Subtract 16 from both sides.
5x > 15
Divide both sides by 5. (You solve just like an equation, except If you multiply/divide by a negative value, then you have to reverse the carat.)
x > 3
Use the same principles to solve the second inequality. 
15=547=2585=148=5+96+65+65589258963.1407
