Compound Inequalities 2

Directions: Using the digits 1 to 9, at most one time each, make two compound inequalities that are equivalent to 2 ≤ x < 4.


How does changing the coefficient affect the resulting value?
How does changing the constant next to x affect the resulting value?


There are many answers including:

4 ≤ 1x + 2< 6 and 5 ≤ 2x + 1< 9.

    6 <_ 2x + 1 < 9
