    Help with an Inequality

    The problem is:

    2/3 >= (2x - 3)/12 > 1/6

    I would greatly appreciate it if someone had the time to walk me through this problem, step by step. Thanks in advance!

    Multiply all sides by 12:

    \frac{24}{3} \geq 2x-3 > \frac{12}{6}

    8 \geq 2x-3 > 2

    Add 3 to all sides:

    11 \geq 2x > 5

    Divide all sides by 2:

    \frac{11}{2} \geq x > \frac{5}{2}
