Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you have 8 is less than or equal to 2x4 AND 2x4 is less than 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh, do you want to just isolate x to get the values for x, solve it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My options are: 1. 6 < or = to X < 4 2. 2 < or = to X < 1 3. 0 < or = to X < 5 4. 2 < or = to X < 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[8 \le (2x4) \lt 2\] \[8 +4\le (2x) \lt 2 + 4\] \[\frac{ 12 }{ 2 } \le x \lt \frac{ 6 }{ 2 }\] this says \[6 \le x \lt 3\] which is not true, x can not be bigger than 6 AND less than 3 at the same time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the way you put the problem, you cant have solutions for that, you can break it up into \[x \ge 6~~~~OR~~~~x \lt 3\]
