Solving linear inequalities
 86
Solve given linear inequality.
 Solution: x - 8 < 2x - 4 - x < 4 | · (-1) x > -4 The solution of the inequality is every real number greater than  -4.
 87 Solve inequality   3(x - 2) > -2(1- x).
 Solution:     3x - 6 > -2 + 2x x > 4 interval notation (4, oo)
The open interval (4, oo) contains all real numbers between given endpoints, where round parentheses indicate exclusion of endpoints.
 88 Solve given linear inequality.
 Solution: -4x + 9 - 3x < 6 - 5 + 5x -12x < -8 x > 2/3 interval notation The half-closed (or half-open) interval contains all real numbers between given endpoints, where the square bracket indicates inclusion of the endpoint 2/3 and round parenthesis indicates exclusion of infinity.
 89 Solve inequality   (x - 3) · (x + 2) > 0
Solution:   The factor x - 3 has the zero at x = 3, is negative for x < 3 and is positive for x > 3, and
the factor x + 2 has the zero at x = -2, is negative for x < - 2 and is positive for x > -2,
as is shown in the table
 x - oo increases -2 increases 3 increases + oo x + 2 - 0 + + + x - 3 - - - 0 + (x - 3)(x + 2) + 0 - 0 +
Thus, the given inequality is satisfied for    - oo < x < - 2    or     3 < x < + oo
in the interval notation     (- oo , -2] U [3, + oo ) Solving compound (double) inequalities
 90 Solve inequality    -4 < 2(x - 3) < 5
Solution:  We want the x alone as middle term and only constants in the two outer terms. Remember, while simplifying given compound inequality, the operations that we apply to a middle term we should also do to the both left and right side of the inequality.
 -4 < 2(x - 3) < 5 | ¸ 2    91
