open intervals (- inf., -7) and (2, + inf.)

#### Explanation:

(1) - 3x < - 6 -->

(2) x + 5 < - 2 -->

You may solve the linear compound inequalities by graphing, using the double-number-line technique:

(1) -------------------------------------- 0 ---------- 2 +++++++++++++++

(2) +++++ - 7-------------------------0 ---------------------------------------

By superimposing, we see the answer, that is the open intervals: (-inf., -7) and (2, +inf.)
