I tried studying up on the topic but its really hard for me to understand. Can someone help me solve this problem and explain it to me? Math is not my strong suit, and i'm failing.

Solve the inequality. Show your work.

-5/2(3x+4)<6-3x.

Again, thank you all so much.

#1**+1 **

-5/2(3x+4)<6-3x distribute the -5/2 over the terms in the parentheses

(-15/2)x - 20/2 < 6 - 3x

(-15/2)x - 10 < 6 - 3x add 3x , 10 to both sides

(-15/2)x + 3x < 6 + 10

(-15/2)x + (6/2)x < 16

(-9/2)x < 16 multiply both sides by -2/9....change the direction of the inequality sign

x > 16 (-2/9)

x > -32/ 9
