```Okke,

Needs["Algebra`InequalitySolve`"]

InequalitySolve[3*x^2 + 2*x + 1 <= 2*x + 5, x]
-(2/Sqrt) <= x <= 2/Sqrt

You will get False is there are no solutions. Sometimes you will get Root
objects. Look them up in Help.

InequalitySolve[-5*x^3 - 3*x^2 + 2*x + 1 <= 2*x + 5, x]
N[%]
x >= Root[4 + 3*#1^2 + 5*#1^3 & , 1]
x >= -1.1772423815220807
