Oct 27, 2016

We can write the statement "t between 3 and 5" as $3 < t < 5$

#### Explanation:

Observe that between $3$ and $5$, $3$ is smaller i.e. $3 < 5$.

Hence we can write the statement "t between 3 and 5", as

$3 < t < 5$

$3 < t < 5$

#### Explanation:

Since the value of t is between 3 and 5 and not equal to them, then 3 is less than t and t is less than 5.

The statement $3 < t < 5$ reads, t is greater than3 and less than 5.
