\[12+x \le 2x2\]We want to rearrange the inequality so that \(x\) appears by itself on one side of the inequality sign, with everything else on the other. I would suggest that perhaps subtracting \(x\) from both sides would be a good way to start.

or subtract 2 from both sides would work, too, but that's probably more errorprone for most people
