$(-\infty, \frac{12}{11})$ Refer to the attached image below for the graph.

Work Step by Step

Add $3x$ to both sides to have: $\\5-3x+3x \ge 8x-7+3x \\5 \ge 11x-7$ Add 7 to both sides to have: $\\5+7 \ge 11x-7+7 \\12 \ge 11x$ Divide to both sides to have: $\\\frac{12}{11} \ge x \\x \le \frac{12}{11}$
