Basic Concepts: Solving polynomial inequalities

Related Concepts: Solving rational equations

Steps to solving rational inequalities:

1. Rewrite in the form $\frac{p(x)}{q(x)}$ > $0$ (symbol can be different)

2. Solve $p(x) = 0$ and $q(x) = 0$

3. Put answers from *step 2* on a number line and check end points and test values
