Would you please help me, I'd really appreciate it (Clapping)

X^2 + X - 2 < 0

and:

Hi BobbyJean

Are there 2 separate questions or just one question consists of 2 inequalities?

Anyway, can you fatorise X^2 + X - 2, then find the critical values, then find the range where X^2 + X - 2 < 0 :) - Sep 14th 2009, 09:17 PMVonNemo19

Hi BobbyJean

Well, you've been given hints. First step, can you factorise X^2 + X - 2 ? :) - Sep 14th 2009, 10:30 PMBobbyJean
