#### Work Step by Step

$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ To solve the given inequality, $5-(6-4x)\ge2x-7 ,$ use the properties of inequality. For the interval notation, use a parenthesis for the symbols $\lt$ or $\gt.$ Use a bracket for the symbols $\le$ or $\ge.$ $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Removing the grouping symbols and using the properties of inequality, the inequality above is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 5-6+4x\ge2x-7 \\\\ 4x-2x\ge-7-5+6 \\\\ 2x\ge-6 \\\\ x\ge-\dfrac{6}{2} \\\\ x\ge-3 .\end{array}
