Answer

$\lt$

Work Step by Step

RECALL: The Addition Property of Inequality states that for real numbers $a$, $b$, and $c$, If $a \lt b$, then $a+(-c) \lt b+(-c)$ Thus. if $x \lt 5$, then, adding $-5$ to each side of the inequality gives: $x + (-5) \lt 5+(-5) \\x-5 \lt 0$ Therefore, the missing inequality symbol is $\lt$.
