    simplify the equation and you will get 5-x-5> -2x-8 clean it up and you will get x>8

    although wouldn't it be 5-x+5>-2x-8 then +2x +2x then 5+x+5>-8 then -10 -10 So to conclude x>-18 would that be right and i know im the one who needed help but would negitive 18 be right?

    the negative has to be distributed to the 5 as well so 5-(x+5)=-2(x+4) distribute everything to get rid of the parenthesis 5-x-5>-2x-8 i cleaned it up and got -x>-2x-8 +2x +2x x>-8 ohh oops guess i forgot the negative in my first answer sorry about that
