math, beginning algebra

how do i solve the following equations.

Problem # 1
3x greater than or equal to 2x minus 4

can someone correct number 2
Problem # 2

7(x-3)> 5x-14
7x -21 > 5x -14

3x is greater than 2x minus 4.

3x>= 2x-4
subtract 2x from both sides

7(x-3)> 5x-14
7x -21 > 5x -14
7x-5x>-14+21 Notice the plus here. YOu have to add 21 to each side.

    Here's a question I'm having trouble with: |x|/|x+2|=0 and x+2>0, x must be greater than or equal to zero. When I solved for x in this case, I got x>-4. Reconciling the constraints leaves me back at x>=0. Did I do that correctly?
