x -2 is an expression, not an inequality.

### What is a double inequality?

A double inequality is an inequality where there are two signs,
as opposed to one.
Ex: an inequality could be 3x < 15
A double inequality could be 3x < 15 < x + 20
If you'd want to solve that double inequality, you split it into
to expressions:
3x < 15 and x + 20 > 15
Then just solve.
x < 5 and x > -5
-5 < x < 5

### How do you solve an inequality when using the distributive property?

You solve an inequality in the same way as you would solve an
equality (equation).
The only difference is that if you multiply or divide both sides
of an inequality by a negative number, you must reverse the
inequality sign.
Thus, if you have
-3x < 9
to find x, you need to divide by -3. That is a negative number
so
-3x/(-3) > 9/(-3) reverse inequality
x > -3
