Hello to everyone. This is my first time here so I hope I will not cause any unwanted trouble.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Straight to the problem. I have one inequality for which I would like to prove, but I do not know how. The inequality has the following form:-

(1+a)q<q/(1-a), wherea< 1 andqcan be any positive real number.

Can someone hint me the direction to prove this? So far, I tried to tackle the inequality by substitutingawith different real number smaller than 1, and there is no discrepancy to the inequality.
