Inequality
$\left (\frac{\pi-3 }{2} \right )^{x^2-x}+\frac{6\pi}{4}-\frac{\pi^{2}+9}{4}> 0$

What I could do:confused:

I would throw everything over to the RHS that doesn't have an x in it. What does that give you?

'RHS' - what does it mean?

What I could do:confused:

$\left (\dfrac{\pi-3 }{2} \right )^{x^2-x}>-\dfrac{6\pi}{4}+\dfrac{\pi^{2}+9}{4}$

$\left (\dfrac{\pi-3 }{2} \right )^{x^2-x}>\left(\dfrac{\pi-3}2\right)^2$

Can you take it from here?

@Ackbeet: Thanks for spotting the typo.

RHS means "Right Hand Side". Similarly, LHS means "Left Hand Side".

Yes, I can.

Probably meant

Corrected in the next line, though.

Yes, I notice it.
