We have:1x-2>4Here, two cases arise.CASE 1: When 1x-2>0, then 1x-2=1x-2∴ 1x-2>4⇒ 1x-2-4>0⇒1x>6⇒x∈0, 16 …(i)CASE 2: When 1x-2<0, then 1x-2=-1x-2∴ -1x+2>4⇒-1x>2⇒1x<-2⇒x∈-∞,-12 …(ii)Hence, the solution set of the given in equation is the union of (i) and (ii).∴ x∈-∞,-12∪0, 16

**Q7.**

**Answer :**

We have, x+2×2+1>12⇒x+2×2+1-12>0⇒2x+2-x2+12×2+1>0⇒2x+4-x2-12×2+1>0⇒-x2+2x+32×2+1>0To make the fraction of the left side positive, either the numerator or the denominator should be positive or both should be negative.Since, it is clear that the denominator is positive, the numerator must be positive.-x2+2x+3>0⇒x2-2x-3<0⇒x-3x+1<0Now, to make the left side negative, one of these i.e. (x-3) or (x+1) should be positive and the other should be negative.Also, x+1>x-3∴ x+1>0 and x-3<0⇒x>-1 and x<3⇒x∈-1, 3 The integral solution of x is 0, 1, 2.Hence, there are 3 integral solutions of the given inequation.

**Q8.**

**Answer :**

We have,5x+2<3x+8 and x+2x-1<4⇒2x<6 and x+2x-1-4<0⇒x<3 and x+2-4x+4x-1<0⇒x∈(-∞,3) and -3x+6x-1<0⇒x∈(-∞,3) and -x+2x-1<0For -x+2x-1<0, critical points are 1 and 2.⇒x∈(2,∞)∪ (-∞,1)∴ x∈(-∞,1)∪(2,3)

**Q9.**

**Answer :**

We have:x+1x>2⇒x+1x-2>0CASE 1: When x+1x>0, then x+1x=x+1xNow, x+1x-2>0⇒x+1x-2>0⇒x2+1-2xx>0⇒(x-1)2x>0⇒x>0 and x≠ 1⇒x∈(0,1)U(1,∞) …iCASE 2: When x+1x<0, then x+1x=-(x+1x)Now, x+1x-2>0⇒-x-1x-2>0⇒-x2-1-2xx>0⇒x2+1+2xx<0 Multiplying both sides by -1⇒(x+1)2x<0⇒x<0 and x≠-1⇒x∈(-∞,-1)U(-1, 0) …iiThus, the solution set of the given inequation is the union of i and ii (0,1)U(1,∞ )∪(-∞,-1)U(-1, 0)=R–1, 0, 1∴ x∈R–1, 0,

**Q10.**

**Answer :**

We have:x-1≥x-3⇒x-1-x-3≥0The LHS of the inequation has two seperate modulus. Equating these to zero, we obtain x=1,3 as critical points.These points divide the real line in three regions, i.e (-∞,1], [1,3], [3,∞).CASE 1: When -∞<x≤1, then x-1=-(x-1) and x-3=-(x-3)∴ x-1-x-3≥0⇒-(x-1)–(x-3)≥0⇒-x+1+x-3≥0⇒-2≥0But this is not possible.CASE 2: When 1≤x≤3, then x-1=x-1and x-3 =-(x-3)∴ x-1-x-3≥0⇒x-1+x-3≥0⇒⇒2x≥4⇒x≥2⇒x∈[2,∞)CASE 3: When 3≤x<∞, then x-1=x-1 and x-3 =x-3∴ x-1-x-3≥0⇒x-1-x+3≥0 ⇒2≥0This is true.Hence, the solution to the given inequality comes from cases 2 and 3.[2,∞)U [3,∞)= [2,∞)∴ x∈[2,∞)
