is only negative for x>1, it is positive for 0<x<1
I am trying to solve
Because log 0.5 is always negative, the entire numerator must be negative as well for the entire expression to be positive. Therefore,
For I reached the conclusion that or
But I'm stuck at
if I multiply the denominator over it will be x + 3 < x -1, which makes no sense to me
Please, if someone could point out where I made my error, I've spent a lot of time on this question and the due date is approaching fast. Thank you!
it makes no sense, why did you multiply then? you can't, because don't know that the sign of is, so you need to proceed from a different way.
start by leaving that inequality with a LHS in function of and with a RHS in zero, what i meant is you to leave it as and then you'll be able to solve it as you did it before.
