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!

Solving Linear Inequalities: Practice Problems

2. 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.

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!

Set Notation, Compound Inequalities, and Systems of Inequalities

4. 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.

Graphing Inequalities: Practice Problems

5. 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

6. 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!

Solving and Graphing Absolute Value Inequalities: Practice Problems

7. Solving and Graphing Absolute Value Inequalities: Practice Problems

Solving and graphing absolute value inequalities brings a lot of different skills together in one place. The practice problems in this video will give you a good chance to see more examples of absolute value inequalities but will also test your general algebraic knowledge.

Graphing the Feasible Region of a System of Inequalities

8. Graphing the Feasible Region of a System of Inequalities

The feasible region of a system of inequalities is the area of the graph containing the points that satisfy all the inequalities at once. Watch this lesson to learn how to graph one.

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

9. 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.
