Interval notation involves parentheses and brackets.
Parentheses go with the strict inequalities (like < or >)
Brackets go with the non-strict inequalities (like ≤ or ≥)
x ≤ 3 is the same as ∞ < x ≤ 3 is the same as (∞,3]
0 < x ≤ 8 is the same as (0,8]
Note that infinty is not a number. It can never be "included". Always use parentheses around the infinity side of the inequality statement.
