to solve this, just solve each inequality separately and join the solution with "AND"
solve:
x  2 > 3 AND 3x <= 12

the second part would be x<= 4 right but the first part I have no idea could you walk me through it

for the first part, add 2 to both sides of the inequality:
x  2 + 2 > 3 + 2
x > ???
