1) Solve the following inequality. Write the answer in interval notation.

X/X+3 ≤ -2/5(X-3)

Now check the sign of inequality in the intervals (-∞, -3), (-3, 3/5], [3/5, 2], [2, 3) and (3, ∞).

Take x = -4 from the interval (-∞, -3)

> 0

Take x = 0 from the interval (-3, 3/5]

< 0

Take x = 1 from the interval [3/5, 2]

> 0

Take X = 2.5 from the interval [2, 3)

< 0

Take x = 4 from the interval (3, ∞)

> 0

Thus, the solution is (-3, 3/5] or [2, 3)

Answer: (-3, 3/5] or [2, 3)

2) Solve the inequality. 3 < |5X+3| < 5

Solution:

We can divide it into two inequalities.

3 < |5X + 3| or |5X+3| < 5

That is

3 ...
