    First we label the number with a statement like ''Let number = n''.;

    Then we write (2/3)n + 8 > 12 which is an inequality, not an equation. The inequality

    can be rewritten as (2/3)n > 4, ie., n > (3/2)4, ie., n > 6.

    Translating word by word to algebra

    (2/3)n + 8 > 12 

    is an expression of inequality.

    If you also want it solved

    n + 12 > 18

    n > 6

    2/3 X > 4

    1/3 X > 2

    X > 6

    12 less 8 = 4

    4 is TWO (not to) Thirds of 12. = 8.

    8 + 8 = 16

    16 > 12
