    Step 1. Clear the parens -2x+6>/=5-x-3\[-2x+6\ge-x+2\]Step 3, place unknowns to the left and know values to the right by using legal algebraic operations. \[-x \ge-4\] Step 4. Multiply by -1, and don't forget when multiplying or dividing thru by a negative number (as we are doing here) reverse the sense of the inequality. \[x \le4\]

    No, I wasn't trying to get u, I liked the way you avoided having to reverse the sense!.
