Answer :5 < 10x - 3correct first step in the solution of 5 – 2x < 8x – 3While solving inequalities that always combine as termsWe try to move x terms on one side. so remove the -2x of the left hand sideto remove -2x , we address operationOpposite of -2x to +2x. therefore, add 2x on both sides.5 – 2x+ 2x < 8x +2x – 35 < 10x - 3 5 < 10x - 3 is the first step in the solution of 5 – 2x < 8x – 3
