### Please, help me out explaining the code

I know it might be too easy for some of you but I came across this simple code and I don't know why the answer is that. Would you please explain where I am mistaken line by line.

 ``12345`` ``````int x=3; while (x++<10) { // 1) x=3,(after it comes down to x++), then x=5 x+=2; // 2) x=6 (after x++), then x=8 } // 3) x=9 (after x++). then x=11 cout <

The right answer is 13 and I can't figure out why. Your help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
x = 3

x++ ---> x incremented to 4, but previous result (3) compared to 10
x += 2 ---> x incremented to 6

x++ ---> x incremented to 7, but previous result (6) compared to 10
x += 2 ---> x incremented to 9

x++ ---> x incremented to 10, but previous result (9) compared to 10
x += 2 ---> x incremented to 12

x++ ---> x incremented to 13, but previous result (12) compare to 10
12 > 10, break

final result is 13.

this is just interview/test type question that is intentionally hard to follow.
x is 3.
is x<10? x is incremented to 4.
it was < 10.
is x < 10? add 1
x is 7.
is x < 10, add 1
x is 10.
