Bring to a common denominator and simplify.

$\frac{3 - 2x}{5} - \frac{x - 7}{6} \leq 2$

$\frac{6(3 - 2x)}{30} - \frac{5(x - 7)}{30} \leq 2$

$18 - 12x - 5x + 35 \leq 60$

$53 - 17x \leq 60$

$-17x \leq 7$

$x \geq -\frac{7}{17}$.

4. ohh okay thanks, need more parctice in latex :|

If writing a fraction you don't put a slash in between the curly brackets.
