Example 3 Solve for  x : –12 ≤ 2  x  + 6 ≤ 8.  Since this compound inequality has no connecting word written, it is understood to be “and.” It is  translated into the following compound sentence. –9 ≤  x  indicates all the numbers to the right of and including –9, and  x  ≤ 1 indicates all the numbers  to the left of and including 1. The intersection of these graphs is the numbers between –9 and 1,
