$x > - 2$

#### Explanation:

Treat an inequality in exactly the same way as an equation, but if you multiply or divide by a negative then the sign changes around.

$3 < 5 , \text{but note that " -3>} - 5$

$4 x + 3 < 6 x + 7$

$3 - 7 < 6 x - 4 x$

$- 4 < 2 x$

$- 2 < x$

This is the same as $x > - 2$
