Concept

$2x−3<5 $

Notice that if $0$ is substituted for $x$ in the inequality, the inequality holds true. Therefore, it can be said that $0$ is a solution to the given inequality.
$2(0)−3<? 5⇒-3<5✓ $

However, this is not the only value that makes the inequality true. There are other $x-$values like $1$ and $2$ that make it true. The set of all possible values that satisfy an inequality is the solution set of an inequality. The solution set can be determined by applying the Properties of Inequalities to isolate the variable on one side of the inequality. $2x−3<5$

$x<4$

$Solution Set {x∣x<4} $

It is worth noting that the solution set of a linear inequality in one variable can also be represented using a number line.
