1) 5-3x > 3
2) Subtract 3, and add 3x, so the equation becomes 2>3x
3) Get x by itself, so divide by 3.
4) $$\frac{2}{3}$$ > x which is x < $$\frac{2}{3}$$

Simplifying, we have:

2/3 > x

5-3x>3

x>2/3 option D

You forgot to flip the inequality , since you are dividing both the sides by -3, you need to flip the sign.
therefore, x<2/3. Hence option C
