Solutions

Chapter 1.1, Problem 54E
To determine

To express: the given inequality in terms of an interval and then graph the interval.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 54E

In terms of interval the inequality can be expressed as [5,) .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

An inequalityis given as

  x5

Concept used:

Aninequality a<x<b in terms of an interval can be expressed as (a,b) .

Aninequality axb in terms of an interval can be expressed as [a,b] .

Aninequality ax<b in terms of an interval can be expressed as [a,b) .

Aninequality a<xb in terms of an interval can be expressed as (a,b] .

Aninequality xb in terms of an interval can be expressed as (,b] .

Aninequality x<b in terms of an interval can be expressed as (,b) .

Aninequality xa in terms of an interval can be expressed as [a,) .

Aninequality x>a in terms of an interval can be expressed as (a,) .

Calculation:

Consider the given inequality.

  x5

So, the inequality can be expressed as aninterval as [5,) .

Graph:

Now, graph the interval on number line as shown:
