We can't find what  x  is equal to, but we can find what  x  has to be greater than.

 

2( 5x - 9 )  >  13

                            Distribute the  2  to the terms in parenthesees.

10x - 18  >  13

                            Add  18  to both sides of the inequality.

10x  >  31

                            Divide both sides of the inequality by  10 ,  a positive number

x  >  3.1
