See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, let's call the number in the problem: $n$

Then we can write "8 less than a number" as:

$n - 8$

Next, we know $n - 8$ "is not more than 14", or, in other words, "is less than or equal to 14". This can be written as:

$n - 8 \le 14$

We also know $n - 8$ "is no less than 5", or, in other words, "is greater than or equal to 5". This can be written as:

$n - 8 \ge 5$

We can combine these to write:

$5 \le n - 8 \le 14$
