sum of twice a number and 5 lies between 7 and 11

Here is how you would write that:

7 < 2x +5 < 11

You can subtract 5 from each term and divide each term by 2 while keeping the < signs in the same direction. This results in

2 < 2x < 6, and then

1 < x < 3

What symbols are used for the phrases

at least

no less than

no greater than

Thank you
