(1) $$x^2 – 5x + 6 < 0.......x^2-3x-2x+6<0......(x-3)(x-2)<0$$....This means 2<x<3.....YES, 2<x<4.

(2) $$3x^2 – 9x < 0.......3x(x-3)<0$$. This means 0<x<3. x can be 1, then NO or x can be 2.5, then YES.

$$x^2 – 5x + 6 < 0…(x-3)(x-2)<0…(less.than=inside.rng)…2<x<3$$

(2) $$3x^2 – 9x < 0$$ insufic

$$3x^2 – 9x < 0…x^2-3x<0…x(x-3)<0…(less.than=inside.rng)…0<x<3$$
