Answer:

# -5 < x < 2 graph{x^2 + 3 x - 10 [-10.24, 9.76, -9.44, 0.56]}

Explanation:

#x^2 < 10 -3 x#
#x^2 + 3 x - 10 < 0#

#(x + 5)(x - 2) < 0#

........................#-oo#...........#-5#............#2#................#+oo#

#(x + 5)#........................-................+...................+...................
#(x - 2)#........................-................-....................+...................

#(x + 5)(x - 2)#.........+................-....................+..................

therefore,

# -5 < x < 2
