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!

Translating Math Sentences to Inequalities

2. Translating Math Sentences to Inequalities

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can easily translate math sentences into inequalities. Once you know how to do this, solving word problems becomes that much easier.

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!

Linear Inequality: Solving, Graphing & Problems

4. Linear Inequality: Solving, Graphing & Problems

If you can solve linear equations, you can solve linear inequalities. In this lesson, you will learn how similar the solving processes are. You will also learn the notations you need to use when graphing linear inequalities.

Solving Linear Inequalities: Practice Problems

5. Solving Linear Inequalities: Practice Problems

Linear inequalities may look intimidating, but they're really not much different than linear equations. In this lesson, we'll practice solving a variety of linear inequalities.

Set Notation, Compound Inequalities, and Systems of Inequalities

6. 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 Solve and Graph an Absolute Value Inequality

7. 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!

How to Solve 'And' & 'Or' Compound Inequalities

8. How to Solve 'And' & 'Or' Compound Inequalities

In this lesson, we will learn the difference between a conjunction and a disjunction and how to solve and graph 'and' and 'or' inequalities on the number line.
