Answer:

#m>8#

Explanation:

If we start with #2(m+3)+1>23#, our first step will be to distribute the #2#, so that the equation becomes #2m+6+1>23#.

From here we should combine like terms, which just means adding #6# and #1#, so that the equation is now #2m+7>23#. Now, we just subtract #7# on both sides, which brings us to #2m>16#.

By dividing by #2# on both sides, we get our solution, which is #m>8#
