Hi, this was posted. you solved it because the poster never answered. but I have a question.

Why this greater than symbol next to the equal symbol?. Is this common or was that a mistake?
Or should i assume this is the the greater or equal than symbol?. Just this doubt. the solution and the steps were given.
thanks.

x10^x/11^x>=(x+1)10^(x+1)/11^(x+1)
