 # x-5

## Enter inequality for interval notation:

Display the interval notation for:
x<5or>-5

## Interval Notation Definition:

An interval as a set of numbers.
Numbers = endpoints.
Since we have an or statement
We break this up into two pieces
Piece 1 → x<5
Piece 2 → >-5

## Evaluate Piece 1

You entered the < sign
Start on the right side of x<5

## Build the interval notation for x:

No equal sign translates to ).
Do not include the number 5
The left side extends to -∞  ## Set Builder Notation for x:

{ x | x<5 } where | denotes such that

## Evaluate Piece 2

You entered the < sign
Start on the left side of >-5

## Build the interval notation for x:

No equal sign translates to (.
Do not include the number -5
The right side extends to +∞  ## Set Builder Notation for x:

{ x | x<5 } where | denotes such that

(-∞,5) U (-5,+∞)

## Display the literal notation for x

-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5,...,∞

(-5,+∞)
