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

l [3/(x-1)] - 5l < 4

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

My 1st step was to make the inequality like this. -4 < 3/(x-1) - 5 < 4

and then i multiplied (x-1) to both left and right side and as well as to the 5.

but in the end, my result turns out to be really wrong.

I got 9/5 < x < 4/5

which is not possible.

please help.
