Is there a shorter solution for this problem? The solution given in OG is quite lengthy and I am scared the time for it won't be sufficient if it comes in the exam.

How many integers that satisfy the inequality \(\frac{(x+2)(x+3)}{(x-2)} >= 0\)

A) 1
B) 2
C) 3
D) 4
E) 5

(Correct answer is D).

Hi Disha,
I feel either your question is incomplete or the right options are not there.
Because the number of solutions of the problem will be infinite ..
So the solutions are -3,-2 and all positive integers greater than 2.

Infact you can put te aforementioned numbers and the solutions will fulfill the requirement.

That is not the full question. The question is

How many of the integers that satisfy the inequality (x+2)(x+3)/(x-2) >= 0 are less than 5?


A) 1
B) 2
C) 3
D) 4
E) 5


And the answer is indeed D. The integers are -2, -3, 3 and 4.
