Do you know how to write:
Two more than 3 > that would be > 2 + 3
Two more than x > that would be > 2 + x
Now try your problem.....

Just to emphasize the salient point in the previous reply: The "more than" and "less than" operators work backwards in the math from the English!
To say "two more than (this)" is to say "(this) plus 2", and to say "three less than (that)" is to say "(that) minus 3".
