Set-builder notation: $\left\{x | -1.5 \le x \le 2\right\}$ Refer to the image below for the graph
A bracket on the left means that the number $-1.5$ is included in the set. A bracket on the right means that 2 is included in the set. Thus, the set includes all real numbers from $-1.5$ to $2$. Therefore, the set-builder notation equivalent of the given interval is: $\left\{x | -1.5 \le x \le 2\right\}$ Recall, when graphing an inequality on a number line, a filled in circle indicates that the number is a solution to the inequality while a circle that is not filled in indicates that a number is not a solution to the inequality.
