Interval Notation:

Interval Notation:

Use each root to create test intervals.

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 always true.

True
