5 - 3x = 17 is not an inequality, it is an equation. Inequalities never have equal signs in them, only "less/greater than", and "less/greater than or equal to" signs.

To solve the equation:

Step 1: Add 3x to both sides: 5 = 17 + 3x

Step 2: Subtract 17 from both sides: -12 = 3x

Step 3: Divide both sides by 3: x = -4

The solution to the equation is x = -4
