It is the union of the two solution sets.

#### Explanation:

You will have two semi-plane. The "or" operator means that you have to take the union of the two solution set.

(2) -5x/8 - 6 > 1

#### Explanation:

(1) ->

(2) ->

Graph:

=========|-56/5 -----------------|0-----|5/3=============

NOTE. The end (critical) point (5/3) is included in the solution set.
