Solve for x

x<1

$x<1$

Solution Steps

5 > 2x + 3

$5>2x+3$

Swap sides so that all variable terms are on the left hand side. This changes the sign direction.

Swap sides so that all variable terms are on the left hand side. This changes the sign direction.

2x+3<5

$2x+3<5$

Subtract 3 from both sides.

Subtract $3$ from both sides.

2x<5-3

$2x<5−3$

Subtract 3 from 5 to get 2.

Subtract $3$ from $5$ to get $2$.

2x<2

$2x<2$

Divide both sides by 2. Since 2 is >0, the inequality direction remains the same.

Divide both sides by $2$. Since $2$ is $>0$, the inequality direction remains the same.

x<\frac{2}{2}

$x<22 $

Divide 2 by 2 to get 1.

Divide $2$ by $2$ to get $1$.

x<1

$x<1$
