E. 5 < 8X < 12.



\(8 + 2X < 18 - 6X < 23 + 2X\)

8<18-8x<23 (add -2x on all sides)

-10<-8x<5

10>8x>-5 (multiply by -1 on all sides)

5/4>x>-5/8

C is the answer

D. 2.5 < X < 3.5.
E. 5 < 8X < 12.


8 + 2X < 18 - 6X < 23 + 2X

Taking one inequality at a time,
8 + 2X < 18 - 6X
8X < 10
X < 5/4 - (i)

18 - 6X < 23 + 2X
8X > -5
X > -5/8 - (ii)

Combining (i) and (ii),

-5/8 < X < 5/4

Correct Option: C

D. 2.5 < X < 3.5.
E. 5 < 8X < 12.


8+2X< 18 - 6X

2X + 6X < 18 - 8

8X < 10
X < (5/4)

Only C has this option.

C is the answer.

[Verify:

18-6X < 23+2X

18-23 < 8 X
-5 < 8X

X > - (5/8) .
Once again this is appearing only in option C]
