#### Explanation:

You can solve this inequality by isolating

So, adding

#2x - color(red)(cancel(color(black)(7))) + color(red)(cancel(color(black)(7))) > 15 + 7#

#2x > 22#

Now divide both terms by

#(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(2)))x)/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(2))) > 22/2#

#x > color(green)(11)#

This means that your inequality is valid for *any* value of

graph{x > 11 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
