What have you tried?

Where are you stuck? - Aug 31st 2011, 07:16 AMPleiadesRe: Solve inequality.
for these kinds of problems, you would

divide this into cases where

1. x<1, x=1

2.1<x<3

3. x>3, x=3

but that problem is weird. even if you put x=1, it's smaller than 5. i think the question's messed up lol - Sep 1st 2011, 04:06 AMHallsofIvyRe: Solve inequality.
Well, I would not say "messed up". I would just say that the answer to the problem is "there is NO value of x that makes this inequality true."
