698: $\displaystyle 3\log_5(x4)>\dfrac{6}{\log_5(x4)+1}$ $\displaystyle 3\log_5^2(x4)+3\log_5(x4)6>0$ This is a quadratic in $\displaystyle \log_5(x4)$ with roots $\displaystyle 2,1$. Solve $\displaystyle x4=\dfrac{1}{25},x4=5$ and $\displaystyle \log_5(x4)+1=0$ to determine the values of interest for $\displaystyle x$. 709: Use the technique outlined above.

711: $\displaystyle \log_{\sqrt[3]{\frac12}}\left(1\dfrac1x\right)\log_{\sqrt[3]{\frac12}}(x+1)<\log_{\sqrt[3]{\frac12}}\dfrac1x+3$ Use $\displaystyle \log a\log b=\log\dfrac ab$ and $\displaystyle \log a+\log b=\log a\cdot b$ to establish the inequality $\displaystyle \dfrac{x1}{x(x+1)}>\dfrac{1}{2x}$. Note that $\displaystyle 3=\log_{\sqrt[3]{\frac12}}\dfrac12$ and that $\displaystyle \sqrt[3]{\dfrac12}<1$
