#### Answer

$(-5, 2)$
Refer to the image below for the graph.

#### Work Step by Step

The inequality means "x is between -5 and 2." This inequality includes all numbers that are between than $-5$ and $2$ but does not include $-5$ and $2$..
The $\lt$ to the left of $x$ means that a parenthesis will be used.
The $\lt$ to the right of $x$ means that a parenthesis will be used.
Thus, the equivalent interval notation of the given inequality is:
$(-5, 2)$
To graph this interval, plot holes (hollow dots) at $-5$ and $2$ then shade the region between them.
