Imagine that a cyclist can compete in a cycle race as a youth until (but nout including) his sixteenth birthday. Riders who are sixteen or over, but less than nineteen years old on the day compete as juniors. Cyclists who are forty or more years old on the day of the race are classed as veterans. Write down three inequalities (one for the age youth and junior and veteran) which summerise these conditions.

Let $y$ be the age of the cyclist that must compete as "youth"
Let $j$ be the age of the cyclist that must compete as "junior"
Let $v$ be the age of the cyclist that must compete as "veteran"

then we have:

for youth: $y < 16$

for juniors: $16 \le j < 19$

and

for veterans: $v \ge 40$
