# How do you solve 3x + 7 > 4x + 2?

Nov 17, 2016

$x < 5$

#### Explanation:

Perform the necessary mathematics to isolate and solve for $x$ while keeping the inequality balanced:

$3 x + 7 - 3 x - 2 > 4 x + 2 - 3 x - 2$

$7 - 2 > x + 0$

$5 > x$

Then flip the inequality to get the solution in terms of $x$:

$x < 5$
