## 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 3x+5$\lt$1 and 3x+5$\gt$-1 2.) Solve the first inequality for x by subtracting 5 and dividing by 3 to both sides 3x+5$\lt$1 -5 -5 3x$\lt$-4 $\div$3 $\div$3 x$\lt$-4/3 3.) Solve the second inequality for x subtracting 5 and dividing by 3 to both sides 3x+5$\gt$-1 -5 -5 3x$\gt$-6 $\div$3 $\div$3 x$\gt$-2 4.) Combine the two inequalities to get a set of values that x can equal (-2,-4/3)
