# Solve for x x^2-5x<0

Convert the inequality to an equation.
Factor out of .
Factor out of .
Factor out of .
Factor out of .
If any individual factor on the left side of the equation is equal to , the entire expression will be equal to .
Set the first factor equal to .
Set the next factor equal to and solve.
Set the next factor equal to .
Add to both sides of the equation.
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 not less than the right side , which means that the given statement is false.
False
False
