The highlighted part is just saying you've tried it for -1 and got one inequality, and then tried it for 1 and got another one, but since you know both have to be true (i.e. p is bigger than both 2 and -2), overall we just want p>=2.

Oh I didn't realize both have to be true. Guess I should have inferred that from the "one possible value". Thanks
