Hi all,

How can I solve this?

http://www4a.wolframalpha.com/Calcul...=62&w=233&h=30

I tried with log_a (b) - log_a (c) = log_a (b/c) but the solution is (13+5x)/(x^2+5x+4)>=0 ...how is this possible?

Thanks in advance

Okay, as you say, is the same as .

Further ,**for any a< 1**, if and only if . That is, your inequality is the same as .

Subtracting 1 from both sides, .

Now, multiply both sides by -1.
