    in such questions you should take everything to one side=>(2x-1)/x-1>0 =>(x-1)/x>0 now set a table and solve

    okk i see where it went wrong!! sorry there is another way to solve such inequalities 2x-1/x>1 (2x-1/x ) -1 > 0 (2x-1/x ) - x/x > 0 (2x-x-1)/x > 0 x-1/x > 0 now we set the table |dw:1344371904513:dw|

    what I do not get if if you plug a number less >0 the inequality does not hold true.
