Divide this problem up into two parts being the and

For the expression to be greater than zero, then both of these parts must be positive or both must be negative (since multiplying two negatives will create a positive – you knew that, didn’t you!).

For both of these parts to be positive, then must be greater than 4 (NOTE: not greater than or equal to – it must be GREATER than only otherwise it will become zero).

For both to be negative, then must be less than zero.

So the answer will be that is either greater than 4 or less than 0 and this can be expressed in the following conditions

or
