Given \(\frac{3 - 5x}{2} + 4 < \frac{x + 2}{3}\), which of the following describes the possible values for x?


(A) x < 29/17

(B) x < 3/14

(C) x < 29/17

(D) x > 29/17

(E) x > 1/6


GIVEN: \(\frac{3 - 5x}{2} + 4 < \frac{x + 2}{3}\)

Multiply both sides by 6 to get: \(3(3 - 5x) + 24 < 2(x + 2)\)

Expand both sides by 6 to get: \(9 - 15x + 24 < 2x + 4\)

Simplify left side to get: \(-15x + 33 < 2x + 4\)

Add 15x to both sides to get: \(33 < 17x + 4\)

Subtract 4 from both sides to get: \(29 < 17x\)

Divide both sides by 17 to get: \(29/17 < x\)

Answer: D
