5<x<11, 7<x<13 can be combined to gather that x<7<11.
Since x is an integer it can be 8,9 or 10. From x+2<12 we can see that x can be 8 or 9.
so b) is the answer.

Restrictions on x..
1) it is an integer.
2) 5<x<11
3) 7<x<13
4) x+2<12...x<10..

From above 3 points, 7<x<10, so 8 and 9
TWO values..
B

E. none of these


We have the following:

For 5 < x < 11, we see that x could be 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10.

For 7 < x < 13, we see that x could be 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12.

Thus, for the first two inequalities, x could be 8, 9, or 10.

We can simplify x + 2 < 12 as x < 10.

Thus, the only integers that satisfy all three inequalities are 8 and 9.

Answer: B
