About This Chapter
ASSET Intermediate Algebra: Linear Inequalities - Chapter Summary
You'll want to be well-prepared for questions on the ASSET Intermediate Algebra test. The videos in this chapter will attempt to familiarize you with the fundamentals of linear inequalities. The lessons include several examples that will encourage you to build your problem-solving abilities. Simply pause the lessons as you work through the equations. Learn how to use a number line and inverse operations, and discover the process necessary to split up an equation so that you can solve the two individual parts more easily. As a result of studying this chapter, you might be able to proficiently:
- Define an inequality, a compound inequality and a system of inequalities
- Use point-slope form
- Graph an inequality that has one or two variables
- Draw a number line
Education professionals have developed this chapter in order to expand your understanding of mathematics. Often less than ten minutes long, the online video lessons are delivered by seasoned instructors. You may also learn from detailed transcripts that align exactly with the narration of the videos, and check out links to relevant courses. The self-assessment quizzes have five questions each, and their results can be printed onto paper. Keep them handy and study as time permits.
ASSET Intermediate Algebra: Linear Inequalities Chapter Objectives
The seven ASSET tests are grouped into basic and advanced categories. One of the advanced assessments, the ASSET Intermediate Algebra Test includes 25 multiple-choice questions and has a time limit of 25 minutes. Its main areas are, Elementary Algebra which has five items, the 16-question Intermediate Algebra and Coordinate Geometry section, and College Algebra, which contains four items. During this test, you'll demonstrate what you've learned in this chapter about linear inequalities, the distance formula, the slope of a line and other concepts within the intermediate algebra category.
1. Equation of a Line Using Point-Slope Formula
It's time for a road trip to Las Vegas, and after four hours of driving at 60 mph ... Are we there yet? Learn the point-slope form of the equation of a line to help answer this age-old question.
2. What is an Inequality?
Deciding how to spend your money can be a tricky thing. Should you save it, invest it, or enjoy it? Learn how inequalities can help you make your decision!
3. How to Graph 1- and 2-Variable Inequalities
So an inequality is just an equation with a less than or greater than symbol. But what is the difference between 1 and 2 variable inequalities? What does have a greater than or equal to symbol change? When do you use a number line instead of a coordinate plane? Get those answers here!
4. Graphing Inequalities: Practice Problems
If you're already pretty familiar with what inequalities are and just looking for a place to practice your skills, this is the place. This lesson covers topics like 1-variable, 2-variable, compound, and systems of inequalities.
