2x + 1 < (3x + 2)/x + 2

solutio:

we remove bracket

~~=2x + 1 > 3x + 2/x + 2 ~~

collection of like terms

=2x+3x>2+1/x+2

=5x+3/x+2

solutio:

we remove bracket

collection of like terms

=2x+3x>2+1/x+2

=5x+3/x+2

2x+1<(3x+2)/x+2

firstly finding the L.C.M

and the L.C.M is x+2

therefore

2x+1(x+2)<3x+2

open the bracket

2x

collect like terms

=2x

=2x

=

firstly finding the L.C.M

and the L.C.M is x+2

therefore

2x+1(x+2)<3x+2

open the bracket

2x

^{2}+ 4x + x + 2 < 3x + 2collect like terms

=2x

^{2}+ 4x + x - 3x < 2-2=2x

^{2}+ 2x < 0=

__2(x__^{2}+ x) < 0**Dongreat**Lv3: Senior Member- Posts : 74 Posts Liked : 37

I think I made a mistake

2x+1<(3x+2)/x+2

L.C.M = x+2

:.

2x+1(x+2)<3x+2

2x2 + 4x + x + 2 < 3x + 2

CLT

=2x^2 + 4x + x - 3x < 2-2

=2x^2 + 2x < 0

Then break it down by dividing 2x^2 + 2x by 2 which is

~~2~~x^2+~~2~~x/2

=x^2+x < 0

=x>-1 Answer

2x+1<(3x+2)/x+2

L.C.M = x+2

:.

2x+1(x+2)<3x+2

2x2 + 4x + x + 2 < 3x + 2

CLT

=2x^2 + 4x + x - 3x < 2-2

=2x^2 + 2x < 0

Then break it down by dividing 2x^2 + 2x by 2 which is

=x^2+x < 0

=x>-1 Answer

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favour freedom and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without ploughing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocen without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. - Frederick Douglass
