Is x is greater than or equal to 11 THE SAME AS x is greater than 10?

I gave x is greater than or equal to 11 as an answer to an inequalities question but the answer given was x is greater than 10

x is greater than or equal to 11 MEANS x is either 11, or 12, or 13, etc, yeah?

x is greater than 10 ALSO MEANS x is either 11, or 12, or 13, etc, yeah?
