## Calculus (3rd Edition)

1.) Set what the inequality equals to what it originally equals, and then set it to the opposite of that number with the opposite inequality sign x+7$\lt$2 and x+7$\gt$-2 2.) Solve the first inequality for x by subtracting 7 from both sides x+7$\lt$2 -7 -7 x$\lt$-5 3.) Solve the second inequality for x by subtracting 7 from both sides x+7$\gt$-2 -7 -7 x$\gt$-9 4.) Combine the two inequalities to find the set of values x can equal (-9,-5)
