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

    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?

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

    the 00 are infinity signs

    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.
