    Interval Notation Correction

    I have a question that i get but is not sure about the answer:
    The annual rate of inflation r is expected to be at least 2.5%, but no more than 5%.

    i got:

    2.5% > r > 5%

    is this right? any correction needed? explain? Thank You

    "At least" means that value or above, and 2.5 is greater than 5, so
    2.5 \% \leq r \leq 5 \%
