Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

x+12>24

"The sum" means use a plus sign (+). "A number" means use a variable, like x. "And 12" means plus 12. "Is" means equals. "Greater than 24" means >24.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

So would I be right if I worked out the problem like this?

x + 12 > 24

x - 12> 24 - 12

x>12
