# How do you solve 5<3+g?

Jun 28, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Subtract $\textcolor{red}{3}$ from each side of the equation to solve for $g$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$- \textcolor{red}{3} + 5 < - \textcolor{red}{3} + 3 + g$

$2 < 0 + g$

$2 < g$

To state the solution in terms of $g$ we can reverse or "flip" the entire inequality:

$g > 2$
