...and a "greater than" thingy...
...otherwise, the algebra is pretty straightforward.
Start by adding 5 to both sides and we get 3x is less than x plus 12.
Now let's subtract an x from both sides and we get 2x is less than 12.
Divide both sides by 2 and we have x is less than 6 - the answer is D.
We did a pretty good job managing that problem, if we do say so ourselves.
