what is the solution of the inequality?

**drwls**, Sunday, January 3, 2010 at 7:42amIf (2x+1)/(x+1) = 2, then

2x +1 = 2x +2

which can never happen.

If x>-1, 2x +1 <= 2x + 2

which is always true

If x<-1 2x +1 >= 2x =2

which is never true.

Therefore x > -1 is the answer.

x = -1 is not allowed
