Re: Inequality

I do not know right answer but in my head))) exist this:
X/(x^2 -2x- >0
for the (x^2 -2x- :
x = [ 2 +/- square_root( 2^2 - 4*(- ) ] / 2 = 1 +/- square_root( 4 + 32 )/2 =
= 1 +/- 6/2 = 1 +/- 3 = { 4, -2 } (x1 = 4 and x2 = -2)

then we can to write
x/(x^2 -2x- = x / [ (x - x1)*(x - x2) ] = x / [ (x - 4)*(x + 2) ]

I think this
x do not equal 4 and -2 because we will have division by zero (but we used this numbers to transform equation)

we have x from ( - infinity) to (+ infinity)
then

case ( x < - 2 ) : (-) /[ (-)*(-) ] < 0 /* because x < 0, x - 4 < 0 , x + 2 < 0 as conclusion from that :: x < - 2 */

case ( -2 < x < 0 ) : (-) /[ (-)*(+) ] > 0 /* because x < 0, x - 4 < 0 , x + 2 > 0 as conclusion from that :: -2 < x < 0 */

case ( 0 < x < 4 ) : (+) /[ (-)*(+) ] < 0 /* because x > 0, x - 4 < 0 , x + 2 > 0 as conclusion from that :: 0 < x < 4 */

case ( 4 < x ) : (+) /[ (+)*(+) ] > 0 /* because x > 0, x - 4 > 0 , x + 2 > 0 as conclusion from that :: 4 < x */

But ! You need to write it in proper form, which is demanded by teacher, book, because I do not know the rules of ...

Hello, jatt-rockz!

 Solve each inequality graphically. State the solution and graph the solution: [color=beige]. . [/color]

[color=beige]. . [/color]When is it positive?
[color=beige]. . [/color]When is its graph above the x-axis?

The function factors:[color=beige] .[/color]x\,+\,1)(x\,-\,3)(x\,-\,4)" />
[color=beige]. . [/color]Its x-intercepts are:[color=beige] .[/color]

The graph looks like this:
