7 -  2a/3  -  a- 5/12  +  3(a+3)/2 < a - 3/4(2a-7) + 5a-1/6

 

7 - (2/3)a - a - (5/12) + (3/2)(a + 3) < a - (3/4)(2a - 7) + 5a - (1/6)

 

7 - (2/3)a - a - (5/12) + (3/2)a + (9/2) < a - (3/2)a + (21/4) + 5a - (1/6) 

 

Multiply through by 12

 

84 - 8a - 12a - 5 + 18a + 54 < 12a - 18a+ 63 + 60a - 2

 

133 - 2a  < 54a + 61

 

72 <  56a      divide by 56

 

72/56 < a

 

a >  9/7

 

 

cool cool cool
