First of all you may want to simplify the left side of the inequality.

We get:

6x-10>2x+6

Now, I don't now if you have any experience in solving regular equations, but inequalities work in exactly the same way. The only exception to this is that when you transfer a minus sign from one side to another you have to change the inequality symbol(e.g. -1<5 so 1>-5)

So, if we treat the inequality as an equation, we get that:

6x-10>2x+6

=> 6x>2x+16

=> 4x>16

=> x>4
