    is it \(\Large 1.25 < x < 1.5\) ?? OR is it \(\Large 1.25 \le x \le 1.5\) ??

    "at least" means "that amount or more" So saying `A container of milk costs at least $1.25 but less than $1.50` can be translated to \(\Large 1.25 \le x < 1.50\) where x is the cost of milk so choice A is out

    `A student spends at least 1 hour 15 minutes, but no more than 1 hour 30 minutes on homework.` would translate to \(\Large 1.25 \le x \le 1.50\) basically anything between 1.25 and 1.50 is allowed for x. The value of x could be 1.25 itself or 1.50 itself

    `The point value of a test item is more than 1.25 points and less than 1.5 points.` turns into \(\Large 1.25 < x < 1.5\)
