Nonlinear Inequality

Module 18: Nonlinear Inequalities in One Variable

QuestionAnswer
What are the four steps for Solving a Polynomial Inequality? 1.Solve related equation. 2.Place solutions on a number line. 3.Test each region with a various testing point. 4.Write solution in interval notation.
How would you solve this equation: 5x2 - 13x - 18 < 0 First, factor the the equation using the FOIL method - (5x-18)(x+1) - and solve for x - x=18/5,-1. Then, solve for the three separate regions that form (ex. -2,1,4). Finally, write the answer in interval notation: (-1,18/5)
What are the five steps for Solving Inequalities that contain Rational Expressions? 1.Solve for values that make all denominators 0. 2.Solve related equation. 3.Separate number line into regions. 4.Choose a testing point for each region. 5.Write solution in interval notation. Do not include values that make any denominator 0.
Just by looking at the equation x+9/x-2>_0, what number(s) automatically cannot be included in the answer? (Note: >_ : My lame greater than or equal to sign) 2. The denominator cannot be 0 (which would be the difference of 2-2) so 2 is automatically not an answer.
Just by looking at the equation x+9/x-2<0, what number(s) automatically cannot be included in the answer? -9 and 2. The denominator cannot equal 0 which automatically eliminates 2. Also, because the equation cannot equal 0, -9 is eliminated.
How would you solve this equation: x-2/x+5>_0 Find the number that makes the denominator 0 (-5), then multiply the given denominator on both sides and solve for x (x=2). Test each region that formed from the equation(ex.-6,1,3). Finally, write the answer in interval notation: (-inf,-5)U[2,inf)
Solve: 4x3 + 16x2 - 9x - 36 > 0 Factor: 4x2(x+4)-9(x+4). Combine like terms:(4x2-9)(x+4). Factor: (2x+3)(2x-3)(x+4). Solve for x: x=3/2,-3/2,-4. Test and answer:(-4,-3/2)U(3/2,inf)
Solve: x+7/x-3<0 0 Denominator: 3-3. Solve for x: -7. Test and answer: (-7,3).
Solve: x4 - 9x2 + 20 <_ 0 Factor. Use radicals if you have to. x= sqrt5,-sqrt5,-2,2. Test and solve. [-sqrt5,-2]U[2,sqrt5]
Solve: x(x+6)/(x-6)(x+3)>_0 0 Denominators: 6-6,-3+3. Solve for x: 0,-6. Test and solve: (-inf,-6]U(-3,0]U(6,inf).
