Answer:

Solution: # t < -6 and t > 3 # In interval notation:
#t| (-oo,-6)uu (3,oo)#

Explanation:

# (t-3)/(t+6)>0 ; t != -6# as the function is undefined at #t=-6#

Critical points are #t=3 and t = -6#

Sign chart:

When #t <-6 # sign of #f(t)# is #(-)/(-)=(+) ; >0#

When #-6 < t<3 # sign of #f(t)# is #(-)/(+)=(-) ; <0#

When #t > 3 # sign of #f(t)# is #(+)/(+)=(+) ; >0#

Solution: # t < -6 and t > 3 # . In interval notation:

#t| (-oo,-6)uu (3,oo)#
