Answer:

See solution process below

Explanation:

First, we have to transpose terms in order to leave x alone

#5-x>3# it's the same #5-3>x#; that it's the same #2>x#

The solution are all numbers #x# lower than 2. This the interval #(-oo,2)#. The side in 2 is "open=parenthesis" because 2 is not included in the solution: the numbers must be lower than 2 but not equal to 2
