# Solve the Inequation 18 – 3 (2x – 5) > 12; X ∈ W. - Mathematics

Sum

Solve the inequation 18 – 3 (2x – 5) > 12; x ∈ W.

#### Solution

18 – 3 (2x – 5) > 12; x ∈ W.

⇒ 18 - 6x + 15 > 12

⇒ 33 - 12 > 6x

⇒ 21 > 6x

⇒ 6x < 21

⇒ x < 21/6 + 7/2 = 3 1/2

But x ∈ W, x = 0, 1, 2, 3

∴ Solution set = {0, 1, 2, 3}
