To solve a quadratic inequality such as x^{2}-6x+8>0 the best approach is to find the critical values of x which make the value of the function 0 and sketch the graph. Here we can factorise so we see that we require (x-2)(x-4)>0 We are looking for values of x to make x^{2}-6x+8 positive. We see that y is positive when x>4 and when x<2.

If you wish to see some worked examples and try some exercises you could check **The Maths Teacher** – See Algebra AS Level – Inequalities: Linear and Quadratic. Note the choice of video / transcript or go straight to the **exercise with worked solutions. **You may find other useful resources here too.

You could of course use WolframAlpha to check the solution to any inequalities and generate as many examples as you want. Simply type in the inequality and plot as well as the he solutions will be returned.

Hi Colleen: Excellent post Cuadratic Inequalities. However, I tell my students and I are from Corrientes, a province of the Republic of Argentina, and our very basic English. So we strive to understand the resources (video, lessons and exercises) Site The Maths Teacher.

Congratulations and a big hello !!

Then I do hope the Desmos pictures are helpful! Perhaps you could try the examples from The Math Teacher on Desmos or WolframAlpha?
