# How do you solve x/5> -3?

Mar 7, 2018

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Multiply each side of the inequality by $\textcolor{red}{5}$ to solve for $x$ while keeping the inequality balanced:

$\textcolor{red}{5} \times \frac{x}{5} > \textcolor{red}{5} \times - 3$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{5}} \times \frac{x}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{5}}}} > - 15$

$x > - 15$
