(E) for me

2 <= 3x + 4 <= 6
<=> -2 <= 3*x <= 2
<=> -2/3 <= x <= 2/3

Yes, I can try

I have activated the "Disable HTML in this post" option on your first post.... Please repost the question in it

The question is basically asking u if x is limited and so not running to infinite....

Normally, a glance on each answer makes it... but, to be sure on some answers, we could transform the inequalities to obtain x alone

More once u update

Can you explain why not B? I thing B and E both are finite and continuous.

Ya but be careful with just glancing. I almost picked A b/c I was too lazy to write this down on paper.

Only E works or so I think. I can't quite make out what B is suppose to be.

Still im pretty sure its E.
