# inequality watch

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

6x-14 < 5x-2 ≤ 7x+2

Thanks a lot!
2. Try splitting it into 2 separate inequalities, and then solve the 2 new inequalities by rearranging them. Should be okay from there. =]
3. 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
4. Consider the problem as two separate inequalities.

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