How do you solve 5x<6x+2?

Apr 18, 2017

$x > - 2$

Explanation:

Subtract $6 x$ from both sides

$5 x \textcolor{red}{- 6 x} < 6 x \textcolor{red}{- 6 x} + 2$

$- x < 2$

Multiply both sides by $- 1$ (when you multiply or divide by a negative number you must flip the inequality sign)

$- x \cdot - 1 \textcolor{b l u e}{>} 2 \cdot - 1$

$x > - 2$
