inequality solve
Good Afternoon forum I am having major issues with the following problem any feedback would be appreciated

Thanks:

No what I am trying to do is use the critical value method to solve this irrational inequality, then I have to write the solution set in , interval notation:
that is what i meant* by sign charts.

How far have you gotten? You've factored the numerator, found the zeroes of the numerator and denominator, figured out where each factor is positive and negative, drawn up your chart, and... then what?

(Note: I am assuming that, by "chart", you mean something like what is explained here. If this is wrong, please provide detailed corrections.)

Please be complete. Thank you! :D
