(X+5)(X+3)>0

x+5>0 x>-5

X+3>0 x>-3

Why is the equality for X+5>0 x<-5 ? as the answers give?

the first one:

x+5>0 ; x>-5

x+3>0 ; x>-3

[tex](-5, +\propto) \cap (-3, +\propto) = (-3, +\propto)[/tex]

and the second

x+5<0 ; x<-5

x+3<0 ; x<-3

[tex](-\propto, -5) \cap (-\propto, -3) = (-\propto, -5) [/tex]

The final solution:

[tex](-\propto, -5) \cup (-3, +\propto)[/tex]

Anyway, this way is much more time-consuming... So you shouldn't use it in future.. There is much easier way...

you could have just said

the first one:

x+5>0 ; x>-5

x+3>0 ; x>-3

[tex](-5, +\propto) \cap (-3, +\propto) = (-3, +\propto)[/tex]

and the second

x+5<0 ; x<-5

x+3<0 ; x<-3

[tex](-\propto, -5) \cap (-\propto, -3) = (-\propto, -5) [/tex]

The final solution:

[tex](-\propto, -5) \cup (-3, +\propto)[/tex]

Anyway, this way is much more time-consuming... So you shouldn't use it in future.. There is much easier way...

"because if X > -5 then the first bracket will become negative and then (x+5)(x+3) wouldnt be > 0."

but ok. =P

btw : i just realised why
