    Once one understands what it is that is being asked for, then all becomes clear

    -4 < b < 2

    All I want according to the inequality here is the integers that are between -4 and +2

    so; -4, -3, -2, -1

    and -1, 0, 1

    Because all these integers are between the inequality above

    If only somebody could have said that

    Thanks

    That's the whole point and the helpers try to help you discover the answer,
    which helps a lot more than having the solution thrown at you.

    I agree with you, it's just fustrating to solve it until one understands it?

    Thanks

    If it's a question in set theory, you could have
    the union of two of those sets of numbers offered.
    So the context of the question is relevant.
