# How do you solve \frac { w + 3} { 2} > 6?

Oct 20, 2016

The solution of the inequality is $w > 9$.

#### Explanation:

Use inverse operations to clear the division and then solve for $w$.

$\frac{w + 3}{2} > 6$
$2 \left(\frac{w + 3}{2}\right) > 6 \cdot 2$
$w + 3 > 12$
$w + 3 - 3 > 12 - 3$
$w > 9$
