Try cross-multiplying.Hybr!d said:I am having trouble solving these type of problems for some reason. I cant get to the answer. If anyone could care to explain to me it would be greatly appreciated.
Example 1: 1/x < 1/4
Example 2: 1/x-3 > 2
This does not worknazgjunk said:Try cross-multiplying.
1/x < 1/4
x*4 < 1*1
4x < 1
etc...
1/x-3 > 2
1/x-3 > 2/1
2*(x-3) > 1*1
etc...
I never did cross-multiplying in inequalities, but it should work out.
