You need to solve the inequality `(2-3x)/(x-2) + 4 gt 0` , hence, you should bring the terms to a common denominator such that:
`(2-3x + 4(x-2))/(x-2) gt 0`
`(2 - 3x + 4x - 8)/(x-2) gt 0`
`(x - 6)/(x - 2) gt 0`
The frction is positive if both numerator and denominator have the same sign such that:
`x - 6gt 0 =gt x gt 6`
`x - 2 gt 0 =gt x gt 2`
The values of x that satisfy both inequalities is `(6,oo).`
`x - 6lt 0 =gt xlt 6`
`x - 2lt 0 =gt xlt 2`
The values of x that satisfy both inequalities is `(-oo,2).`
Hence, the values of x that satisfy the given inequality are in the following intervals `(-oo,2)` or `(6,oo).`
