# How do you solve -7+2w>3 and -28>3w+1?

Apr 8, 2017

first answer is $w > 5$
second answer is $w < - \frac{29}{3}$

#### Explanation:

$- 7 + 2 w > 3 \text{ }$plus 7 on both sides

$2 w > 10$

divide by $2$

$w > 5$

$- 28 > 3 w + 1 \text{ minus 1 on both sides}$

$- 29 > 3 w$

divide by $3$

$- \frac{29}{3} > w$ or $w < - \frac{29}{3}$
