So I have this question for a Java class I am taking. It is very simple and maybe I am just missing something simple but I can’t seem to figure out how to do this:

*Code and test a boolean expression that returns true if an integer variable “n” is in the range -15 to 50 inclusive but not odd in the range 10 to 20 inclusive.*

The method I have been trying is this:

```
System.out.println(n%2==0 && n > 10 && n < 20 && n>-15 && n < 50);
```

While it does the non-odd number and 10-20 inclusivity correctly it will not state that a value is "true" when outside of the 10-20 range.

p.s question requires this to be done in a *sout* line

### >Solution :

Using parentheses helps to better represent your condition, which I’ve reproduced here, annotated on what I believe to be the correct solution.

```
System.out.println( // true if an integer variable “n” is
n >= -15 && n <= 50 // in the range -15 to 50 inclusive
&& !( // but not
n % 2 == 1 // odd
&& n >= 10 && n <= 20 // in the range 10 to 20 inclusive.
)
);
```

note that I use `>=`

and `<=`

, rather than `>`

and `<`

, because it says "inclusive".

I don’t think it’s possible to represent this expression in a single line without using some parentheses to group some of the checks together.
