# How do you solve 5x + 5> 15?

May 31, 2018

$x > 2$

#### Explanation:

$5 x + 5 > 15$

Firstly, subtract $5$ from both sides;

$5 x + 5 - 5 > 15 - 5$

Secondly, simplify;

$5 x + 0 > 10$

$5 x > 10$

Thirdly, divide both sides by the coefficient of $x$

$\frac{5 x}{5} > \frac{10}{5}$

$\frac{\cancel{5} x}{\cancel{5}} > \frac{10}{5}$

$x > \frac{10}{5}$

$x > 2$
