In this inequation what i'd usually do is bring -x-2 and x+5 to the "same root" that's 6. But i don't think i'm going anywhere because of that 3 on the right. What would you suggest me to do here?

Have you tried graphing the functions and and determining the values for which this inequality holds true?

i need to prepare for an exam, i don't think doing graphs will help me if i have to solve a similar inequation

Solve the

**equation**. The points where those are equal or where the roots are not defined (x must be less than -2, of course) separate ">" from "<". - Jul 17th 2010, 08:07 AMProve It
On the contrary, you should NEVER try to solve any equations or inequations without picturing what you are actually dealing with (i.e. graphing). To gain a deep understanding of function analysis, you need to understand and be able to connect the numerical, graphical and algebraic representations of your function.
