    Concerning Inequalities

    How do you know if an inequality has more than one set of intervals? Looking at the problems I've done, it looks like less than always has one set, and greater than has two. Is this a pattern?

    HI

    no one can tell by just looking at the inequality , there is no special formula for this since its not our concern to know how many sets it has

    so like von memo suggested , solve it then you know .
