The final solution is all the values that make true.

Use each root to create test intervals.

Choose a test value from each interval and plug this value into the original inequality to determine which intervals satisfy the inequality.

Test a value on the interval to see if it makes the inequality true.

Choose a value on the interval and see if this value makes the original inequality true.

Replace with in the original inequality.

The left side is less than the right side , which means that the given statement is false.

False

False
