    Inequality

    AED and EBC are triangles
    ED=DC
    AE=4 units
    EB=6 units
    BC=10 units
    AD=x units
    Which of the following values x can't assume?
    a)2 b)2.25

    Answer is 2 but according to me x can be 2.According to the book x
    can't be 2.


    ED=DC=a
    4<2a<16
    2<a<8

    a<4+x
