$\text{Set Builder Notation: } \{ m|m\gt12 \} \\\text{Interval Notation: } (12,\infty)$
Using the properties of inequality, then \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} m-17\gt-5 \\\\ m\gt-5+17 \\\\ m\gt12 .\end{array} Hence, the solution set is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \text{Set Builder Notation: } \{ m|m\gt12 \} \\\text{Interval Notation: } (12,\infty) .\end{array} In the graph, a hollowed dot is used for $\lt$ or $\gt.$ A solid dot is used for $\le$ or $\ge.$
