 Author Comment/Response Caleb 02/08/10 08:39am Hi, I'm trying to reduce inequalities with various exponential functions and Mathematica just hangs on them (runs for a very long time). For example: Reduce[(x - 3)^(3 x^2 - 9 x + 15) - (x - 3)^(x^2 + 8 x - 20) >= 0 && x - 3 > 0, x, Reals] It should reduce to (if I'm not wrong): 3.5 <= x <= 4 || x >= 5 I think this happens because there's a variable in the base. Is Mathematica capable of reducing such inequalities, or am I doing someting wrong? :) URL: ,
