    What you want to do is to add \(\rm 5(x + 2)\) and \(\rm 4(2x + 6) + 2\).

    5x - 10 > 8x +24 + 2 Combine like terms. subtract 5x from both sides 5x - 10 > 8x +24 + 2 -5x -5x -------------------- -10 > 3x + 26 no you have to subtract -26 from both sides -10 > 3x + 26 -26 - 26 ---------------- -36 > 3x Now you divide 3 from both sides /3 /3 ---------- 12 > x
