To solve the inequality 3x + 2 < 5(x - 4), follow these steps:

- Distribute the 5 on the right side: 5(x - 4) = 5x - 20.
- Combine like terms: 3x + 2 < 5x - 20.
- Subtract 3x from both sides: 2 < 2x - 20.
- Add 20 to both sides: 22 < 2x.
- Divide both sides by 2: 11 < x.

So, the solution to the inequality is x > 11.
