(x^2 -22)/(x-4) >/= -7/2

2x^2 - 44 >/= -7 x + 28

2 x^2 + 7 x - 72 >/= 0

for very large positive x this is true

for very large negative x this is true

where is it not true?

(it is a parabola)

when is that zero?

x = [ -7 +/- sqrt (625)]/4

= [-7 +/-25]/4

x = -8 or x = 4.5

so

x</=-8 or x>/=4.5
