# List all integers satisfying the inequality -1 $$\leq$$ 2 x -6 < 4.

### Question

List all integers satisfying the inequality -1 $$\leq$$ 2 x -6 < 4.

### Options

A) 2, 3, 4, 5

B) 2, 3, 4

C) 2, 5

D) 3, 4, 5

E) 4, 5

The correct answer is B.

### Explanation:

2 $$\leq$$ 2x - 6 < 4 = 2x - 6 < 4

= 2x < 10

= x < 5

2x $$\geq$$ -2 + 6 $$\geq$$
= z $$\geq$$ 2
∴ 2 $$\leq$$ x < 5 [2, 3, 4]

## Dicussion (1)

• 2 $$\leq$$ 2x - 6 < 4 = 2x - 6 < 4

= 2x < 10

= x < 5

2x $$\geq$$ -2 + 6 $$\geq$$
= z $$\geq$$ 2
∴ 2 $$\leq$$ x < 5 [2, 3, 4]
