# Question #9c7dc

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

The first thing to acknowledge here si the fact that any solution interval that you find **must not** include the value

That is the case because **cannot** happen. So right from the start, you know that

Now, in order to get rid of the denominator, multiply the right side of the inequality by

You will have

#(2x-6)/(1-x) < 2 * (1-x)/(1-x)#

This can be reduced to

#2x - 6 < 2 * (1-x)#

Distribute the

#2x - 6 < 2 - 2x#

Add

#2x - 6 + 2x < 2 - color(red)(cancel(color(black)(2x))) + color(red)(cancel(color(black)(2x)))#

#4x - 6 < 2#

Next, add

#4x - color(red)(cancel(color(black)(6))) + color(red)(cancel(color(black)(6))) < 2 + 6#

#4x < 8#

Divide both sides of the inequality by

#(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(4)))x)/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(4))) < 8/4#

#x < 2#

Now, when you write the solution interval, **do not** forget to add the restriction! In interval notation, the solution will be

#x in (-oo, 2) "\" {1}#

That means that **any value** that is **smaller** than **and not** equal to
