5x+7>42. To solve this, you do almost the same thing you would for a normal equation.

First, you subtract 7 from both sides.

5x > 35. Then you divide by 5.

x > 7. This is the answer.

To explain what this really means, it means that 5x+7>42 will be true so long as x>7. x=7.00001 could work or x = 10,000. However, x =7 will not work, or anything less such as x=1.
