Answer:

no solution

Explanation:

Given: #x >= 5 " and " x < 1#

The word "and" means intersection.

There is no intersection between #x >= 5# and #x < 1#.

interval notation for #x >= 5: " "[5, oo)#

The bracket means #5# is included.

interval notation for #x < 1: " "(-oo, 1)#

The parenthesis after the #1# means #1# is not included.
