2x+3<5

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

2x<5-3

Subtract 3 from both sides.

2x<2

Subtract 3 from 5 to get 2.

x<\frac{2}{2}

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

x<1

Divide 2 by 2 to get 1.
