# How do you solve 10x - 7 > 2x + 25?

Jul 21, 2018

$x > 4$

#### Explanation:

$10 x - 7 > 2 x + 25$

Subtract $\textcolor{b l u e}{2 x}$ from both sides:
$10 x - 7 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{- \quad 2 x} > 2 x + 25 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{- \quad 2 x}$

$8 x - 7 > 25$

Add $\textcolor{b l u e}{7}$ to both sides:
$8 x - 7 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 7} > 25 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 7}$

$8 x > 32$

Divide both sides by $\textcolor{b l u e}{8}$:
$\frac{8 x}{\textcolor{b l u e}{8}} > \frac{32}{\textcolor{b l u e}{8}}$

$x > 4$

This can be said as "$x$ is greater than 4."

Hope this helps!
