if the inequality sign if throwing you off, pretend it is an equal sign. literally right in equals if you cannot get passed just the sign. But, there are some rules that go with it (common sense though, so not big deal), so you cannot just replace it with an equal sign adn then put in the inequality
9x  11 > 4x + 12
5x > 23 ; subtract 4x, add 11 to both sides
x > 23/5 ; divide both sides by 5
the rest are done the same. If you do not know when to flip the sign, just make a true inequality, like:
2 < 3
and do teh same operation on that, like if you multiply by 1, you get...
2 < 3
which is not true, so you have to flip the sign.
