yes, set the numerator and denominator equal to zero and solve for all the x-values you get. write these values on a number line, and test each interval (by plugging in any number in the interval) to see which numbers satisfy the inequality.

sigh, lets just do it.

Doing what I said, we get ( since the denominator cannot be zero, and since that would make the expression equal to zero, which we don't want. so we will only have open intervals here).

our intervals are:

.......in this interval, test in the original inequality. It works!

........in this interval, test . it does NOT work.

........in this interval, test . It works!

and finally, .......in this interval, test . it does NOT work

Hence, your solution set is
