3p – 4 ≤ 1 > \(1 \leq {3p  4} \leq {1}\) > \(1 \leq {p} \leq {5/3}\)
Max value of q is 5/3 and min value is 1
Range = 5/3  1 = 2/3
Answer: B

Case 1 : \(3P4\leq{1}\) \(P\leq{\frac{5}{3}}\) Case 2 : \(3P\leq{1}\) \(\frac{P}{1}\) Range : Larger  Smaller \(\frac{5}{3}  1\) \(\frac{2}{3}\) B

A. 0 B. 2/3 C. 1 D. 5/3 E. 2 Just square both sides to get 9p^224p+15≤0 (3p5)(p1)≤0 so 1≤p≤5/3 range = highestsmallest ==5/31====2/3==B Ans B

I do not understand what is being asked.
I could find out the ranges as 1 < = x <= 5/3,
But reducing 5/31 doesnt make sense to me, can someone explain.

Hey Bunuel, Thanks a lot, thanks a lot man! really appreciate. Also, I do not clearly recollect, the concept related to this step "1 ≤ 3p – 4 ≤ 1" Can you post link for this ? thanks again!

You can always rewrite x < a (where a is a positive number) as a < x < a. For example, x < 1 means 1 < x < 1. Similarly we can rewrite 3p – 4 ≤ 1 as 1 ≤ 3p – 4 ≤ 1 Hello... for practice i did the following: 3p4 piecewise is 1. 3p4 for p>4/3 2. 3p+4 for p< or equal to 4/3 1. gave p less than or equal to 2 2. gave p greater than or equal to 1 so my range is 1 (21) can you please explain where i went wrong?
