    Hi guys, just wondering how would you solve this inequality:

    6x-14 < 5x-2 ≤ 7x+2

    Thanks a lot!

    Try splitting it into 2 separate inequalities, and then solve the 2 new inequalities by rearranging them. Should be okay from there. =]

    or solve the entire thing at once. i.e. add 2 to both sides so the middle fe diddle becomes 5x, then divinde the entire thing by 5

    Consider the problem as two separate inequalities.

    Get two inequality solutions and use these to create a solution range for x.
