## Tutor Answer

For this type of problems, we solve each inequality on its own, this will give us two intervals, we need to get the intersection of those two intervals, and hence we'll get the values that will satisfy both inequalities at the same time. So let's do it :)1) solve the first inequality: 3x + 2 ≥ 5simply move the +2 to the other side by minus sign, so we'll get:3x ≥ 5-2 which gives 3x ≥ 3now divided both of them by 3, note that this won't change the "≥" because 3 is positive, so we'll get:3x/3 ≥ 3/3 which is x ≥ 1, what...
