# How do you solve and write the following in interval notation: x>2?

Mar 9, 2017

$\left(2 , + \infty\right)$

#### Explanation:

$x > 2 \text{ is in solution form}$ and tells us that x cannot equal 2 but can take values greater than 2.

$\text{this is expressed in interval notation as } \left(2 , + \infty\right)$

The parenthesis on both ends of the interval indicates that x cannot equal $2 \text{ or } + \infty$ but any value in between them.

$\text{If the solution was "x>=2" then}$

$\left[2 , + \infty\right)$ would be the solution in interval notation.

$\text{the "[" indicates can equal the value at this end.}$
