I am writing an exercise for a precalculus homework assignment that deals with the topic of interval notation. The point of the exercise is to convert open, closed, and half open intervals described in English into interval notation. Here is a snippet of the exercise:
Write the following sets of numbers represented textually in interval notation.
(a) All real numbers between 5 and 7 that include 5 but don't include 7.
(b) All real numbers between 1 and 10 that include both 1 and 10.
So for example, the answer to part (a) would be $[5, 7)$.
I feel as though my wording is awkward and confusing in both the prompt and parts (a) and (b). Could anyone give me advice on re-wording or re-imagining this question to make it more clear?
