The annual expenses of a manufacturing company must satisfy the inequality that follows, where x is in millions of dollars.
2(x5)>6(x3)
A. Solve the inequality for x. Interpret the result.

Except for multiplying/dividing by a negative number, treat just like an equation.
First get rid of the parentheses by multiplying.
2x  10 > 6x 18
Subtract 2x from both sides and add 18 to both sides.
You should be able to work it from there. 
is it 28>4x
or 10>4x? 
2(x5)>6(x3)
2x  10 > 6x  18
2x  6x > 18+10
4x > 8
x < 2
