help please... brain fart

lol

$(-5/4x+9)<0$

OpenStudy (saifoo.khan):

$-\frac54x + 9 < 0$ $-\frac54 < -9$ $-5x < -9 \times 4$ $-5x < -36$ FLIP ACTION! $5x > 36$ $x > \frac{36}{5}$

(whispers) the 9 is under the denominator with the 4x... that is what i am having trouble with

OpenStudy (accessdenied):

soo.. $\frac{5}{4x + 9} < 0$ ?

OpenStudy (accessdenied):

with a negative

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes

OpenStudy (accessdenied):

i havent done any rational inequalities... ever... but I think we're looking at when the graph is still negative, that would be where our denominator is greater than 0 that would be when 4x + 9 > 0 4x + 9 > 0 4x > -9 x > -9/4 x > -2 1/4 it looks like the graph would support this as well. its juts that I havent done any actual problems like this before! :P
