# How do you solve 33 – 2a > 7?

Oct 30, 2015

You solve it just as you would solve an equation.

#### Explanation:

$33 - 2 a > 7$

Subtract 33 from each side to isolate $2 a$.

$- 2 a > 7 - 33$

Subtract $33$ from $7$.

$- 2 a > - 26$

Multiply each side of the inequality by $- 1$ to make $2 a$ positive.

$2 a < 26$

Divide each side by two to find the value of $a$.

$a < 13$
