Solve five 𝑥 is greater than 45 for 𝑥.

In order to solve for 𝑥, we need to get rid of the five that’s next to it. And since five is multiplied to 𝑥, we need to do the opposite. We need to divide. So the fives cancel on the left. And we get 𝑥. So 𝑥 is greater than 45 divided by five, which is nine. So 𝑥 is greater than nine.
