    which is your problem?

    \frac{4}{x}+5 > \frac{1}{2x}+3

    or

    \frac{4}{x}+5 > \frac{1}{2}x+3

     \frac{4}{x+5} > \frac{1}{2x+3}

    Well first off you cross multiply giving...

     4(2x+3) >x+5

    Then expanding the LHS you get...

     8x+12 >x+5

    Can you finish it from here?
