$-5x+3\lt-48$ $-5x+3\gt23$
$-5x+3\lt-42$ Subtract 3 from both sides: $-5x+3-3\lt-42-3$ Simplify: $-5x\lt-45$ Divide both sides by -5 (reverse the sign): $\frac{-5x}{-5}\lt\frac{-45}{-5}$ Simplify: $x\gt9$ $-5x+3\gt23$ Subtract 3 from both sides: $-5x+3-3\gt23-3$ Simplify: $-5x\gt20$ Divide both sides by -5 (reverse the sign): $\frac{-5x}{-5}\gt\frac{20}{-5}$ Simplify: $x\lt-4$
