```Hi.

You can Reduce
(http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/functions/Reduce)

Reduce[p*(1 - p) < q*(1 - q) && 0 < p < q < 1, {p, q}]
0 < p < 1/2 && p < q < 1 - p

There is also the package InequalitySolve

InequalitySolve[p*(1 - p) - q*(1 - q) > 0 && 0 < p < q < 1, {p, q}]
(Inequality[0, Less, p, LessEqual, 1/2] && 1 - p < q < 1) || (1/2 < p <
1 && p < q < 1)
