# How do you solve 2(x + 7)> 6?

Apr 12, 2016

$x > - 4$

#### Explanation:

Solving an inequality is similar to solving an equation.

$2 \left(x + 7\right) > 6$

Divide both sides by 2

$\implies x + 7 > 3$

Subtract 7 from both sides:

$\implies x + 7 - 7 > 3 - 7$

$\implies x > - 4$

This means that the $x$ can be any number greater than $- 4$.
And, $x$ cannot be equal to $- 4$ or any number lesser than $- 4$.
