83 and 91 are the limits inclusively We can just take the average of the 3 tests, since we dont know the value of the third test it is our x value, then just place that between the limits and solve for x 85 <= (x + 83 + 91)/3 <=90 So first solve this, (x + 83 + 91)/3 <=90 then solve this, 85 <= (x + 83 + 91)/3 Then simply place the values you get into square brackets

treat it like an equality and solve for x, just remember if you multiply or divide by a negative you have to flip the inequality sign
