5 - 7x < -3x - 11

-7x < - 3x - 16 {subtracted 5 from both sides}

- 4x < -16 {added 3x to both sides}

**x > 4**{divided both sides by -4 and changed the inequality sign}

Additional Note:

- Whenever you multiply or divide both sides of an inequality,

by a negative number, you have to change the inequality sign
