ASSET Numerical Skills Test: Inequalities in Math - Chapter Summary

The lessons within this math-related chapter can help you pick up and remember important details about inequalities in math. As you get ready for the test, you will also discover old and new information about:

  • The definition of an inequality in relation to math
  • Solving practice problems that involve the graphing of inequalities
  • Absolute value inequalities
  • Graphing inequalities with one or two variables
  • Compound inequalities and set notation

The lessons can help prepare you for the ASSET Numerical Skills Test because they discuss inequality-related topics that you are going to find on the actual assessment. Thanks to quizzes at the end of each lesson, you can see if you are remembering the right material.

ASSET Numerical Skills Test: Inequalities in Math Objectives

When you take the ASSET Numerical Skills Test, you will see if you know the material necessary to be considered for admission to different postsecondary institutions. The material discussed in this Inequalities in Math chapter is part of the pre-algebra section of the exam, which makes up 22% of the entire test. You will be asked to answer multiple-choice questions that require you to first read through a problem. Working your way through each lesson gives you the tools and resources to do well on the exam.

What is an Inequality?

1. 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!

Set Notation, Compound Inequalities, and Systems of Inequalities

2. Set Notation, Compound Inequalities, and Systems of Inequalities

In this lesson, we'll explore the conditions of compound inequalities and learn how to express them using set notation and interval notation. Test you knowledge afterward with a short quiz.

How to Graph 1- and 2-Variable Inequalities

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!

Graphing Inequalities: Practice Problems

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.

How to Solve and Graph an Absolute Value Inequality

5. How to Solve and Graph an Absolute Value Inequality

Taking two skills and combining them to make a more complicated problem is a classic tactic in mathematics. If you feel confident with absolute values and inequalities, see if you can tackle them with their powers combined here!
