solve te compound inequality
6 > -5x + 5 or 9 < - 3x + 4

• algebra -

Simplify both inequalities.

6 > -5x + 5
1 > -5x
5x > -1
x > -0.2

9 < -3x + 4
5 < -3x
3x < -5
x < -5/3

No solution

If x > -0.2, it cannot be also less than -5/3

• algebra -

rewrite as
5x > -1 OR 3x < -5
x > -1/5 OR x < -5/3

On a number line, draw a small open circle around -5/3 with an arrow on a line going to the left, and a small open circle around -1/5 with an arrow going to the right.

In other words, the only numbers that will NOT work are between -5/3 and -1/5 inclusive.
