Interval Notation:
Use each root to create test intervals.
Choose a test value from each interval and plug this value into the original inequality to determine which intervals satisfy the inequality.
Test a value on the interval to see if it makes the inequality true.
Choose a value on the interval and see if this value makes the original inequality true.
Replace with in the original inequality.
The left side is greater than the right side , which means that the given statement is false.
