2. I assume that you mean
(2x/4) - (5x+1)/3 > 3
x/2 - (5x+1)/3 > 3
Multiply both sides by 6.
3x - 10x -2 > 18
Add 2 to both sides and combine x terms.
-7x > 20
Divide both sides by -7. Multiplying by a negative number requires that the direction of > be reversed.
x < 20/7
(IF I interpreted your original inequality correctly)
