# How do you write the following in interval notation: x >2 OR 5<x?

Jun 13, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

The interval notation for $x > 2$ is $\left(2 , + \infty\right)$

The interval notation for $5 < x$ is the same as $x > 5$ which is $\left(5 , + \infty\right)$

The OR indicates a union of the two sets which results in:

$\left(2 , + \infty\right) \cup \left(5 , + \infty\right) \implies \left(2 , + \infty\right)$
