To solve the below inequality in terms of intervals and illustrate the solution set on the real number line -
The solution of the inequality is and and the solution set on a real number line -
An inequality compares two values, showing if one is less than, greater than, or simply not equal to another value.
Real number line is the line whose points are the real numbers.
Given: Inequality equation is
To solve the above inequalities, we need to find the different intervals for which the inequality gives a value greater than .
is negative and is negative.
So, one of the solutions is
is positive and is negative.
So, cannot be one of the solutions.
is positive and is positive.
So, one of the solutions is ;
Thus, combining both the solutions, we have:
Drawing the above inequality on a real number line, we have:
Hence, the solution of the inequality is and and the solution set on a real number line -
