## jayjay 5 years ago Solve the quadratic inequality, and note end behavior. Give answer in simpified improper fractions. x^2-34<-x

1. jayjay

$x^2-34\le-x$

2. jayjay

The concave is up

3. jayjay

The instructor is looking for x$\in$

Just treat it like a normal quadratic, and the less than or equal like an equal. Get it <= 0, then use the quadratic formula to get your roots.

Once you have the roots you'll have something like $(x-a)(x-b) \le 0$ Which will give you bounds on x of a and b.
