Explanation:

Given an inequality, you can
- add the same amount to both sides
- divide both sides by any amount greater than zero
without effecting the validity or orientation of the inequality

#1 < 3x-2 <=10#

can be split into two inequalities

#1 < 3x-2#
#color(white)("XXX")rarr 3 < 3x#
#color(white)("XXX")rarr 1 < x#

and

#3x-2 <= 10#
#color(white)("XXX")rarr 3x <= 12#
#color(white)("XXX")rarr x <= 4#
