Answer:

See a solution process below

Explanation:

First, remove the term on the left side of the inequality from parenthesis. Remember "minus a minus is a p;us":

#r + 5 > -2#

Now, subtract #color(red)(5)# from each side of the inequality to solve for #r# while keeping the inequality balanced:

#r + 5 - color(red)(5) > -2 - color(red)(5)#

#r + 0 > -7#

#r > -7#
