I'm still having trouble with this problem. Can someone please explain the steps to me.
2x+4>12
Is this the next step?
2x+44=124

2x + 4 > 12
First, divide by 2 on all terms. (Or you can subtract the 4. It doesn't matter.)
x + 2 > 6
Subtract the 2.
x > 4
Divide by 1 on both sides. Don't forget to switch the inequality sign when dividing by a negative number.
x < 4

No problem. :)
A helpful hint is that you can solve inequalities as you would any other equation. Just pretend the inequality is an equal sign. (But if you're dividing by a negative, don't forget to flip the sign.)
