$x > 44$

Explanation:

Treat the inequality sign as an equals sign so you can isolate the variable. Multiply both sides by $2$ so $x$ is isolated.

$\frac{1}{2} \cdot 2 \cdot x > 22 \cdot 2$

$x > 44$

$x > 44$

Explanation:

$\text{multiply both sides by 2}$

$\cancel{2} \times \frac{x}{\cancel{2}} > 2 \times 22$

$\Rightarrow x > 44 \text{ is the solution}$
