Get x's on one side.

7x + 2 - 4x > 4x - 4 - 4x

3x + 2 > - 4

Isolate the 3x on the left side.

3x + 2 - 2 > -4 -2

3x > - 6

Get x alone.

3x / 3 > -6 / 3

x > -2

When working with inequalities, treat the inequality sign as you would and equal sign except, when multiplying or dividing both sides by a negative number, reverse the inequality sign.

7x + 2 > 4x - 4

7x - 4x > - 4 - 2

3x > - 6

x > - 6 / 3

x > - 2
