solve the inequality 8/x+3/4/<2 used / / for brakets around x+3/4 possible answers x<-1 or x>-1/2 -5/32<x<5/32 -1<x<-1/2 x<-5/32 or x>5/32 not looking for just the answer but help on how to do it

8(x + 3/4) < 2 8x + 6 < 2 8x < -4 x < -1/2 Ahh. by brackets you mean || for absolute value? 8|x + 3/4| < 2 if x+3/4 >= 0, then x < -1/2 as above if x+3/4 < 0, then -8(x + 3/4) < 2 -8x - 6 < 2 -8 < 8x x > -1 -1 < x < -1/2

Thank you for explaining
