Ch 26: ACT Math: Inequalities

Revisit important algebra concepts to prepare for the ACT college admissions exam. Our short video lessons and quizzes provide the information to help you prepare for the test.

ACT Math: Inequalities - Chapter Summary

Demonstrate that you're ready for entry-level college math courses through the math section of the ACT. Working with inequalities is a crucial algebraic concept, and our engaging lessons and quizzes help you review the following aspects:

• Defining inequality
• Graphing inequalities
• Set notation
• Compound inequalities
• Systems of inequalities
• Graphing 1- and 2-variable inequalities
• Solving and graphing absolute value inequalities

Make sure that you're ready to excel in math on test day. In addition to providing information on the inequality topics listed above, this chapter also includes exercises to help you practice graphing inequalities and solving absolute value inequalities.

ACT Math Objectives

You'll complete 60 multiple-choice questions within 60 minutes for the math section of the ACT. Most of the problems are stand-alone, but some might be in sets and refer to a common visual. Questions will address these six areas of math:

• Pre-, elementary and intermediate algebra
• Coordinate and plane geometry, in addition to trigonometry

The portion of the test that deals with algebra is 55% of the total exam. You should strive to demonstrate an understanding of the following objectives related to inequality:

• Linear equations
• Absolute value
• Solving and graphing absolute value inequalities

Once you've watched our video lessons and worked your way through the self-assessment exercises and quizzes, you'll have a good idea of any areas that still need more attention.

You get four ACT scores reported for math: your total score on all 60 questions, a sub-score for pre-/elementary algebra, the sub-score for intermediate algebra/coordinate geometry and a sub-score for the combination of plane geometry and trigonometry.
