# How do you solve and graph the compound inequality 2 < x < 7 and 2x > 10 ?

Jul 11, 2015

I'll just do the solving. the graphing is a matter of crossing out on a number line.

#### Explanation:

$2 x > 10 \to x > 5 \to 5 < x$
(because you may divide both sides by a positive number)

Combining these we get:

$5 < x < 7$
