Whole numbers mean don't use a fraction!

Does it have to be 3 different numbers or the same one? The number 8 fits into all 3 equations. If not then you can do the math. Take the first equation which is 5 + x < 15

subtract 5 from both sides. Then the equation is x < 10 so you could take any number that is less than 10 and it would make the equation true.
