    Question inequalities

    Solve the inequality: -9<(9-2x)/3<9

    When I tried to solve the -9<(9-2x)/3 part of the inequality, I received an answer
    of 18>x.

    Then, I attempted the (9-2x)/3<9 part of the inequality and got x>-9.

    Therefore, my overall answer was -9<x<18....was I close?

    You weren't close.

    You were correct.
