$x < 1$ or $x > 3$

#### Explanation:

Given: $9 x - 5 < 4 , 5 x + 5 > 20$.

Solving the first inequality:

$9 x - 5 < 4$

$9 x < 9$

$x < \frac{9}{9}$

$x < 1$

Solving the second inequality,

$5 x + 5 > 20$

$5 x > 15$

$x > \frac{15}{5}$

$x > 3$

Because we cannot combine these answer to form a single inequality, the final answer will be: $x < 1$ or $x > 3$.
