    3(x – 4) > 5x + 2

    First you must distribute the 3 to the numbers inside the parentheses

    (3 * x) + (3 * (-4)) > 5x + 2

    3x + (-12) > 5x + 2

    3x – 12 > 5x + 2

    Now you must combine like terms

    3x goes with 5x

    ^^^To do this subtract 3x to both sides of the equation

    (3x – 3x) – 12 > (5x – 3x) + 2

    0 – 12 > 2x + 2

    -12 > 2x + 2

    -12 goes with 2

    ^^^To do this subtract 2 to both sides

    -12 – 2 > 2x + (2 – 2)

    -14 > 2x + 0

    -14 > 2x

    Isolate x by dividing 2 to both sides

    -14/2 > 2x/2

    -7 > x

    Hope this helped!
