Solve `5x+7gt=2` 

First subtract 7 from both sides.

`5x + 7 - 7 = 2 - 7`

`5x = -5` Now divide both sides by 5.

`(5x)/5 = (-5)/5`

`x = -1`

The solution is x = -1.

5x+7>=2

treat it as an = sign

5x>=2-7

5x>-5

X>=-1

5 times x plus 7 greater than or equal to 2

`5x+7gt= 2`

try getting like terms on the side

`5x+7-7gt= 2-7`

`5xgt= -5`

divide by 5

`(5x)/5 gt= -5/5`

`xgt=-1`

What is 5 times x plus 7 greater than or equal to 2

5X + 7 (>=) 2

Then me move the 7 to the right side and also to the left side

5X + 7 - 7 = 2 - 7

5X = -5

We divide the right and left side by 5

5X/5 = -5/5

X = -1
