We have to solve 2x + 3 <= 13

2x + 3 <= 13

=> 2x =< 13 - 3

=> 2x =< 10

Given the inequality: 2x+3 =< 13

We need to find all possible x values that satisfies the inequality.

First we will need to isolate x on the left side.

==> 2x+3 =< 13

Subtract 3 from both sides.

==> 2x =< 10

Now we will divide by 2.

==> x =< 5

Then, the equality holds for all x values equal or less than 5.

==> x = ( -inf, 5]
