Example 2 Solve for  x : 2  x  + 7 < –11 or –3  x  – 2 < 13.  Solve each inequality separately. Since the joining word is “or,” combine the answers; that is, find the  union of the solution sets of each inequality sentence. Remember, as in the last step on the right, to switch the inequality when multiplying by a negative.
