You can
put this solution on YOUR website!
(x+1)/(x-4) <= 0
------
x = -1 is a solution
x = 4 cannot be a solution.
-----
Plot those value on a number line.
---
That creats 3 intervals on the the line.
---
Test a value in each interval to see where the solutions lie.
---
If x = -10 you get -/- > 0, so no solutions in (-oo,-1)
---
If x = 0 you get +/- < 0, so solutions in [1,4)
----
If x = 10 you get +/+ > 0, so no solutions in [4,+oo)
-----
Ans: [1,4)
