The three-part inequality a < x ¡Ü b means "a is less than x and x is less than or equal to b". Which of these inequalities is not satisfied by any real number x?

(a) -5 < x ¡Ü -11
(b) -8 < x ¡Ü -7
(c) 0 < x ¡Ü 4
(d) -2 < x ¡Ü 6

    How can x be greater than -5 and less than or equal to -11? Think about it.

  • Algebra -

    I thought the answer was A as well. X can not be greater than 5 and less than or = to - 11 so A is the answer?
