A rational inequality is an inequality that can be put into one of the forms f(x)<0, f(x)>0, f(x) 0 or f(x) 0, where f is a rational function. An example of a rational inequality is 3 3 0 2 4 This inequ x x + + ality is in the form f(x)>0, where f is the rational 3 3 function given by f(x)= . 2 4 We can find the x-intercept of f by setting the numerator equal to 0. 3x+3=0 3x=-3 x=-1 We can determine wher x x + + e f is undefined by setting the denominator equal to 0. 2 4 0 2x=-4 x=-2 x + = -4 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 4 5 -4 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 4 x y 2 -1 0 1 - ( 29 ( 29 , 2 1, -∞ - ∪ - ∞ + + -
