This is how I did it.

Since the expression is > 0, hence, the x values are above the x -axis, right? And since the graph is a "smiling" graph, x > 4 or x < -1. That's how I got it. - Jun 15th 2009, 05:40 AMstapel

Oh! No wonder...I got the previous question wrong too. Wow. This is a new concept for me. So, I can't multiply unknowns in inequalities. Thanks, guys!
