Follow the standard procedure forsolving rational inequalities:

Move everything over to one side of the inequation:

. . . . .

Combine the two terms into one rational-expression fraction:

. . . . .

Find the x-values for which each of the numerator and denominator is equal to zero. These split the number line into intervals (three intervals, in this case). Then check the sign on each interval.

To learn how to graph the solutions to inequalities (that is, how to mark the solution intervals on the number line), tryhere. (The lesson teaches how to solve linear inequalities, but that's the first type that students usually study, so that's when the basic terms and notation are customarily covered.)
