Solve: |5 – 8x| > 11 and write interval notation for the solution set. This is what I get but I need it in interval notation.

x<-3/4 or x >2

Solve: (x-3)/(x^2-25)<0 and write interval notation for the solution set.

This is what I get for this one but I need it in interval notation.

x<-5 or 3<x<5

**MathMate**, Sunday, August 2, 2009 at 3:38pmThe answers are correct.

To represent disjoint intervals in interval notation, we only need to join each interval using a "union sign", or ∪.

So the required answer would be:

(-∞, -3/4) ∪ (2, +∞)

Parentheses have been used in the above cases (instead of square brackets) because in each of the 4 cases, the values of the limits are to be excluded from the interval.
