Hi, I must solve this inequality. How must I proceed?

I don't know how to, couse I cant do this: so... I know its stupid, but... im a little bit stupid I think.

critical values are , , and

check the original inequality with a value from each of the four intervals defined by the critical values of x ... if the value makes the original inequality true, then all values of x in that interval make the inequality true.

if false ... all values of x in that interval will not work. - May 26th 2010, 05:03 PMUlysses
I've realized that I could "pass" the couse it won't change signs.

But now I have the second derivative and I must analize its sign for the concave intervals. So, I know the solution actually, but if I proceed the same way than before I can't "pass" the couse it would change the sign.

How should I think this? - May 26th 2010, 05:49 PMskeeter
I'm afraid I'm not following ... what is the original problem?
