$$x < 0.4$$

Work Step by Step

To solve for $x$, we need to isolate constants on one side: $$-7.23x > -1.442 - 1.45$$ Simplify the right-hand side of the equation: $$-7.23x > -2.892$$ We now divide by $-7.23$ on both sides to isolate $x$. To divide by a negative number, we need to reverse the sign from greater than to less than: $$x < 0.4$$
