-4 is less than 12+x (Idon'y know how to make the less than sign on the computer) I've subtracted 12 form each side and I get -8. What am I doing wrong?
2m-5=17 I added 5 to each side and get 22. Then divide by 2 get 11. Is that coeerct?

-4 < 12 + x
-16 < x
You did not subtract 12 from -4 correctly.

In the other one
2m = 22
m = 11 is correct

yes for the second questoin

You saved me! THANKS

Thanks
