Math Focus: Calculus/ODEs
You have recently posted a slew of questions, but no effort is shown in any of them.

We aren't really helping you by doing your homework for you...it would be better if you showed your attempts and thoughts so we can guide you rather than hand out answers.

I got 1 < x ≤ 2 or (1, 2]. Here's why.
At x = 1 the expression is undefined. Hence 1 < x. Multiply both sides by 2x(x + 1)(x - 1) and we get 0 ≥ (x - 2)(x² - 2x + 2).
Since x² - 2x + 2 > 0 for all x i.e. the discriminant, x - 2 ≤ 0 i.e. x ≤ 2.
I think there's a bit more solutions that I've posted. I'll let others reply.

I solved for $\displaystyle \frac{1}{2(x\,-\,1)}\,-\,\frac{4}{x}\,+\,\frac{15}{2(x\,+\,1)}\,\geq\,1 \text{.}$
