Answer:

#x > -2/7#

Explanation:

We must simply first the inequality, both the left and right side :)

#10(x + 2) > 2(6 - 9x)#

using Distributive Property of Real Numbers:

#10x + 20 > 12 - 18x#

then we must combine the same terms/like terms
(Using the Golden Rule of Algebra) (Balancing the Equation) :)

#28x > -8#

then divide both sides by #28#

#x > -8 / 28#

reduce to lowest terms,

#x > -2/7#
