  1. the arrow points to the smaller number

    6 < x means six is less than x
    x > 2 means x is greater than 2

    <= means less than or equal
    >= means greater than or equal

    So, you want

    -6 < x < 6

    think of the point of the arrow as small, so it's next to the smaller value.
