120<10(x-2)
120<10(x-2)
Solve using algebraic procedures as you normally would with equations (note: except when dividing a negative number, flip the sign of the inequality!). First, isolate the variable.
120<10(x-2)
Let's get rid of the 10 so we can drop the parentheses and get to x. Divide each side by 10.
12 < x - 2
Add 2 to each side.
14 < x
So, the value of x that satisfies the inequality is any value of x that is greater than (but not equal to) 14.
