Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/x1/(x+1)<0 taking LCM you get 1/(x(x+1))<0 , This means 1<=x<=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember never cancel x on both sides of the inequality even if you get it common, take it the other side and factorize. (If x is negative the inequality is reversed on cancelling x n both sides)
