**MathMate**, Tuesday, June 2, 2009 at 10:01pmSince

[-5,8) is the same as {x|-5=<x<8}

we have

{x|x<-7}

in interval notation

[-infinity, -7)

negative infinity - 7?

**MathMate**, Tuesday, June 2, 2009 at 11:40pmYou are right in actual practice, it is normal to exclude infinity or negative infinity. In my books, -infinity is a short form for negative infinity.

So the correct answer would be:**(negative infinity, -7)**
