# How to solve this exponential inequality?

I want to solve the exponential inequality $$8^x +18^x -2\cdot 27^x>0.$$ I tried

Solve[8^x + 18^x - 2*27^x > 0, x]


and

Reduce[8^x + 18^x - 2*27^x > 0, x]


How do I tell Mathematica to do that?

"I tried...", but you don't say what's wrong with the outcome. –  Federico Russo Jan 15 '13 at 8:40

Reduce[8^x + 18^x - 2 27^x > 0, x, Reals]
(*
x<0
*)


Verifying

Plot[8^x + 18^x - 2*27^x, {x, -6, 3/2}]
