    you can simplify the first equation to 3x - 10, and so you want to find x such that \[3x - 10 > 3x - 2\] which we can see cant be true (as if we simplified it further we would get \[-10 > -2\] which is obviously not true), so the answer is that there are no solutions

    should have used \[\ge\] by the way, but the answer I gave is still correct
