    distribute the -3 so it will be 2x-11<-3x-6 then add eleven to both sides and add 3x to both sides so you will get 5x<5 and x<5

    the interval for x<1 is (-infinity,1) .... is that what you mean by symbols?

    the symbols should be just "x<1" and interval is "(-infinity,1)" I can't think of any other way to write it in symbols
