On my homework is says "On the Beaufort scale of wind force, the term "fresh gale" describes wind speeds from 39 mi/hr to 46 mi/hr. Write a compund inequality to describe "fresh gale" wind speeds."

Would an acceptable inequality be {S: 39 < S < 46} ?

Well, if it's 39 to 46, not inclusive, you're right.

If it is inclusive, you'd have to change the "<" sign to "< (or equal to)."

In LaTex that would be "change the '<' sign to '[itex]\le[/itex]'.
