# How do you solve x+3>10?

Jun 12, 2016

$x > 7$

#### Explanation:

Things you can do with an inequality which maintain the inequality (and its orientation):

• Add or subtract the same amount to both sides;
• Multiply or divide both sides by the same amount provided that amount is greater than zero.

In this case:
we are given $x + 3 > 10$
so
we can subtract $3$ from both sides to get
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} x > 7$
