    I don't think they wanted you to do that far with it. You're told that \(\large\rm 5\le~stuff\) and \(\large\rm stuff\lt 17\) Therefore, \(\large\rm 5\le~stuff\lt17\).

    zepdrix can you help me with this? Points R, S, and T are plotted on a number line. The coordinate of point R is –6. Points S and T are the same distance from point R. What could be the coordinates of S and T? A. S = 0, T = 6 B. S = –4, T = –2 C. S = –9, T = –12 D. S = –10, T = –2

    In text you would write it like this `<=`, In the equation tool, you have to type \le or you can find it on the list of symbols.

    Use the pager program @JB1625 :) If you type @zepdrix somewhere in your own thread, it will alert me to it.

    Or you could google `less than or equal to` and copy paste the symbol :) That might be easier. 3 ≤ a < 7
