# How do you solve 3( 2x - 4) > 3x + 3?

$x > 5$

#### Explanation:

Expand both sides before solving. So the inequality becomes

$6 x - 12 > 3 x + 3$

Move the numerical terms to the right-hand side and the $x$'s to the other side. So we would get:

$3 x > 15$

Then divide both sides by $3$ to get $x$. The answer would be

$x > 5$

x>5

#### Explanation:

Treat greater than as an equals
$= 6 x - 12 > 3 x + 3$
$2 x - 4 > x + 1$
$x > 5$
