    I think m is a constant .

    So x^2 - mx + m is a quadratic function of x , its graph becomes "U" shape .

    We know the solution of x^2 - mx + m = 0 is x = (1/2)[m ± √(m^2 - 4m)] ,

    so the answer for x^2 - mx + m > 0 becomes :

    Case1. when m < 0

    m^2 - 4m > 0 , so there are 2 solutions of x . Therefore , the answer is

    x < (1/2)[m - √(m^2 - 4m)] or x > (1/2)[m + √(m^2 - 4m)] .

    Case2. when m = 0

    m^2 - 4m = 0 , so there is only one solution of x . Therefore , the answer is

    x ≠ (1/2)m . That is , x ≠ 0 .

    Case3. when 0 < m < 4

    m^2 - 4m < 0 , so there is no real solution of x . Therefore , the answer is

    "x can be any real number" .

    Case4. when m = 4

    m^2 - 4m = 0 , so there is only one solution of x . Therefore , the answer is

    x ≠ (1/2)m . That is , x ≠ 2 .

    Case5. when m > 4

    m^2 - 4m > 0 , so there are 2 solutions of x . Therefore , the answer is

    x < (1/2)[m - √(m^2 - 4m)] or x > (1/2)[m + √(m^2 - 4m)] .

    x<1/2 (m - sqrt((m - 4) m)) and m<=0

    x>1/2 (m + sqrt((m - 4) m)) and m<=0

    calculate what? you have one inequality and two variables.

    There is no solution.
