$\left[ 3,5 \right)$

#### Work Step by Step

$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ To solve the given inequality, $8 \le 3x-1 \lt 14 ,$ use the properties of inequality. For the interval notation, use a parenthesis for the symbols $\lt$ or $\gt.$ Use a bracket for the symbols $\le$ or $\ge.$ $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Removing the grouping symbols and using the properties of inequality, the inequality above is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 8+1 \le 3x-1+1 \lt 14+1 \\\\ 9 \le 3x \lt 15 \\\\ \dfrac{9}{3} \le \dfrac{3x}{3} \lt \dfrac{15}{3} \\\\ 3 \le x \lt 5 .\end{array} In interval notation, the solution set is $\left[ 3,5 \right) .$
