4.5 Inequalities Involving Quadratic Functions To solve a quadratic inequality using the graph, graph the inequality and find its x-intercepts. For f(x) > 0 (strict), find those values of x for which the curve is above the x-axis; and for f(x) < 0 (strict), find those values of x for which the curve is below the x-axis. If the inequality is not strict, e.g., f(x)
