whats interval notation?

  • math -

    Interval notation is a method of writing down a set of numbers. Usually, this is used to describe a certain span or group of spans of numbers along a axis, such as an x-axis. However, this notation can be used to describe any group of numbers.

    For example, consider the set of numbers that are all greater than 5. If we were to write an inequality for this set, letting x be any number in the group, we would say:


    x>5
