In this section we will solve inequalities that involve rational expressions. The process for
solving rational inequalities is nearly identical to the process for solving polynomial inequalities
with a few minor differences.
Let’s just jump straight into some examples. Example 1 Solve x +1
Before we get into solving these we need to point out that these DON’T solve in the same way
that we’ve solve equations that contained rational expressions. With equations the first thing that
we always did was clear out the denominators by multiplying by the least common denominator.
