# Solve for x: 3 − (2x − 5) < −4(x + 2)

When one expression is greater than or less than another expression, we have inequality.

## Answer: The solution to the given inequality is x < -8

The given expression is the inequality. Let's see what does inequality means.

## Explanation:

3 − (2x − 5) < −4(x + 2)

3 - 2x + 5 < -4x - 8

4x - 2x < - 8 - 5 - 3

2x < -16

x < -8
