# Math Help - Help solving this inequality

1. ## Help solving this inequality

Please help me solve this:
-3 less than or equal to 3x-2 less than or equal to -1.

Thanks much!

2. Solve each inequality the same way you would solve an equality. The only difference is that if you have to multiply or divide by a negative number, the inequality sign changes direction.

3. take each inequality separately, then you'll have two inequalities

$-3\leq 3x-2$ and $3x-2\leq -1$

now use rules for inequlities to separate x, so eventually you'll get two possible ranges for x
