4x - m > 0

From the first equation we get 
\[2x - 6 + m < 0  \Rightarrow 2x<6-m \Rightarrow x< \frac{6-m}{2}.\]

From the second equation we get 
\[4x - m > 0 \Rightarrow 4x>m \Rightarrow x> \frac{m}{4}.\]

Putting these two together, we get 
\[ \frac{m}{4} <x< \frac{6-m}{2}      \text{or}     x\in (\frac{m}{4}, \frac{6-m}{2}). \]
