## Introductory Algebra for College Students (7th Edition)

To solve the inequality, we need to isolate the variable on one side and constants on the other side: We first distribute what is in the parentheses: $$3x - 5 < 3x - 6$$ Isolate the variables on one side of the equation by subtracting $3x$ from both sides: $$0 - 5 < -6$$ Simplify: $$-5 < -6$$ Because the inequality is false, there is no solution.
