no solution

Work Step by Step

$18x-5\leq3(6x-2)$ $\longrightarrow$ multiply using the distributive property $18x-5\leq18x-6$ $\longrightarrow$ subtract 18x from both sides $18x-5-18x\leq18x-6-18x$ $\longrightarrow$ combine like terms $-5\leq-6$ Since the simplified inequality is not true, the inequality has no solution.
