#### Question

Solve the following in equation and represent the solution set on the number line.

`R - 3 < -1/2 - (2x)/3 <= 5/6, x ∈ R`

#### Solution

`-3 < -1/2 - (2x)/3 <= 5/6`

Multiply by 6, we get

`=> -18 < -3-4x <= 5`

`=> -15 < -4x <= 8`

Dividing by -4 we get

`=> (-15)/(-4) > x >= 8/(-4)`

`=> -2 <= x < 15/4`

`=> x ∈ [-2, 15/4]`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
