    you are going to need to set up two equations

    one -7(less than or equal sign) 2X+3 two 2X+3(<)5 you will get two answers it would look like this for example 6<x>9

    I end up with 2 is less than or equla to x

    you should get -10 since you subtracted -3 and you have a -7 on the other side you get -10

    -7 (less than equal) 2X+3 -3 -3 =-10 (less than equal) 2x

    but I am supposed to express each in interval notation

    and for the other equation x<5/2

    you should get 1 for the other equation

    2X+3<5 -3<-3 2X<2 divide by 2 on both side 2 2 X=1

    your interval notation sould look something like this its a bad drawing, and than draw the arrows (left or right)

    The solution would then look x<1 for the other one

    if you started with -7 ≤ 2x+3 < 5 you should get, after simplifying, -5 ≤ x < 1 in interval notation, this is [-5,1) the square brackets indicates -5 is part of the interval. ) means the upper value is a limit, approached but not reached.
