The inequality given is 1 < 3x+5 < 17
it can further reduced to -4 < 3x < 12
finally -4/3 < x < 4
So can only take 5 integer values i.e. -1,0,1,2,3
Correct answer - D

C. Four
D. Five
E. Six


\(1 < 3x + 5 < 17\)

=> \(1 -5 < 3x< 17 - 5\)

=> \(-4 < 3x< 12\)

=> \(\frac{-4}{3} < x< 4\)

=> \(-1\frac{1}{3} < x< 4\)


Possible value of x is {-1 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 }

So, Answer will be (D) 4

x can have -1,0,1,2,3- i.e 5 values to be >-4 and <12

Solving the inequality, we have:

1 < 3x + 5 < 17

-4 < 3x < 12

-4/3 < x < 4

So there are 5 integers between -4/3 and 4, namely, -1, 0, 1, 2 and 3.

Answer: D
