Inequalities with multiple steps can be solved the same way as standard equations.
4x + 3 > 6x – 2
Let's solve this equation for "x". We'll start by adding 2 to each side:
4x + 5 > 6x
Next, we subtract 4x from each side:
5 > 2x
Finally, we divide each side by 2:
(5/2) > x
As you can see, inequalities have many of same rules as standard equations.
