anonymous 5 years ago solve the compound inequality 5>-3x+4 or 10≤-5x+4

Does the following look about right? $x\leq -\frac{6} {5}\|x>-\frac{1}{3}$

3. anonymous

yes

4. anonymous

is it infinity -1/3 or -1/3 infinity

Well the result is from executing Reduce[5>-3x+4 or 10≤-5x+4,x] in Mathematica. Have not solved inequalities manually for decades. Not sure where infinity figures into this problem. Is this your question or did someone else put you up to it?

6. anonymous

this is my question from algebra

7. anonymous

it is multiple choice and one of the answers looks like this (00-5/6) upside down u (-1/3 -00)

8. anonymous

the 00 are infinity signs

9. anonymous

Looking back at the answer I would guess that -1/3 infinity is the answer because x has to be greater than -.033333 all the way to infinity if desired.
