# How do you solve the inequality 3x-7>5?

Mar 13, 2018

$x > 4$

#### Explanation:

$\text{Isolate 3x by adding 7 to both sides}$

$3 x \cancel{- 7} \cancel{+ 7} > 5 + 7$

$\Rightarrow 3 x > 12$

$\text{divide both sides by 3}$

$\frac{\cancel{3} x}{\cancel{3}} > \frac{12}{3}$

$\Rightarrow x > 4 \text{ is the solution}$
