(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Solve (x+2)/(x+1) -2 < 0

2. Relevant equations

LCD: x + 1

3. The attempt at a solution

(x+2-2x-2)/(x+1) < 0

(-x )/(x+1) < 0

But somehow, I got the wrong answer. The answer is (4, 7]. But I don't know where I went wrong.
