1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

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

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

so heres where im abit confused. since the inequality sign is not > or >= but instead in this case it is <. Therefore, x has to be between two numbers.

But when i tried to solve l 3/(x-1) - 5 l < 4, it doesnt work out.

Heres my work:

-4 < 3/(x-1) - 5 < 4

1 < 3/(x-1) < 9

x-1 < 3 < 9x-9

you see.. this is nothing where its suppose to be.

i end up getting... bigger number < x < smaller number

am i going the wrong way? please help !
