# How do you solve the inequality 2x-6>8?

Jan 18, 2017

$x > 7$

#### Explanation:

Leave the 2x on the left side of the inequality and numeric values on the right side.

$2 x \cancel{- 6} \cancel{+ 6} > 8 + 6$
$\Rightarrow 2 x > 14$
$\frac{\cancel{2} x}{\cancel{2}} > \frac{14}{2}$
$\Rightarrow x > 7 \text{ is the solution}$
