1 Chapter 1: Tools of Algebra 1-4: Solving Inequalities Essential Question: What is one important difference between solving equations and solving inequalities?

2 1-4: Solving Inequalities Inequalities are solved exactly the same as equations except for one key difference: W HEN MULTIPLYING OR DIVIDING BY A NEGATIVE NUMBER, YOU MUST REVERSE THE INEQUALITY Example: (2 – x) < 41

3 1-4: Solving Inequalities Inequalities are solved exactly the same as equations except for one key difference: W HEN MULTIPLYING OR DIVIDING BY A NEGATIVE NUMBER, YOU MUST REVERSE THE INEQUALITY Example: (2 – x) < 41(distribute) – 5x < 41

4 1-4: Solving Inequalities Inequalities are solved exactly the same as equations except for one key difference: W HEN MULTIPLYING OR DIVIDING BY A NEGATIVE NUMBER, YOU MUST REVERSE THE INEQUALITY Example: (2 – x) < 41(distribute) – 5x < 41(combine like terms) 16 – 5x < 41

5 1-4: Solving Inequalities Inequalities are solved exactly the same as equations except for one key difference: W HEN MULTIPLYING OR DIVIDING BY A NEGATIVE NUMBER, YOU MUST REVERSE THE INEQUALITY Example: (2 – x) < 41(distribute) – 5x < 41(combine like terms) 16 – 5x < 41(subtract 16 from each side) x < 25

6 1-4: Solving Inequalities Inequalities are solved exactly the same as equations except for one key difference: W HEN MULTIPLYING OR DIVIDING BY A NEGATIVE NUMBER, YOU MUST REVERSE THE INEQUALITY Example: (2 – x) < 41(distribute) – 5x < 41(combine like terms) 16 – 5x < 41(subtract 16 from each side) x < 25(divide both sides by -5) -5 -5(and flip the sign) x > -5

7 1-4: Solving Inequalities Graphing Inequalities Regular equations were graphed simply by putting a point on a number line. Because inequalities imply an infinite number of solutions, we graph them using a line W HEN THE VARIABLE COMES FIRST, YOU CAN FOLLOW THE ARROW I F THE INEQUALITY USES, USE AN OPEN CIRCLE I F THE INEQUALITY USES, USE A CLOSED CIRCLE Think: If you do the extra work and underline the inequality, you have to do the extra work and fill in the circle.

8 1-4: Solving Inequalities Graphing Inequalities Example: 3x – 12 < 3

9 1-4: Solving Inequalities Graphing Inequalities Example: 3x – 12 < (add 12 to both sides) 3x < 15

10 1-4: Solving Inequalities Graphing Inequalities Example: 3x – 12 < (add 12 to both sides) 3x < (divide both sides by 3) x < 5 x comes first, which means: Put an open circle at 5 (because the inequality is <) Draw an arrow to the left

11 1-4: Solving Inequalities No Solutions or All Real Numbers as solutions If all variables get eliminated in a problem, it means that the solution is either No Solution or All Real Numbers I F THE STATEMENT IS FALSE, THERE IS N O S OLUTION I F THE STATEMENT IS TRUE, A LL R EAL N UMBERS WILL SOLVE Example: 2x – 3 > 2(x – 5)

12 1-4: Solving Inequalities No Solutions or All Real Numbers as solutions If all variables get eliminated in a problem, it means that the solution is either No Solution or All Real Numbers I F THE STATEMENT IS FALSE, THERE IS N O S OLUTION I F THE STATEMENT IS TRUE, A LL R EAL N UMBERS WILL SOLVE Example: 2x – 3 > 2(x – 5) 2x – 3 > 2x – 10(distribute)

13 1-4: Solving Inequalities No Solutions or All Real Numbers as solutions If all variables get eliminated in a problem, it means that the solution is either No Solution or All Real Numbers I F THE STATEMENT IS FALSE, THERE IS N O S OLUTION I F THE STATEMENT IS TRUE, A LL R EAL N UMBERS WILL SOLVE Example: 2x – 3 > 2(x – 5) 2x – 3 > 2x – 10(distribute) -2x -2x(subtract 2x from both sides) -3 > -10

14 1-4: Solving Inequalities No Solutions or All Real Numbers as solutions If all variables get eliminated in a problem, it means that the solution is either No Solution or All Real Numbers I F THE STATEMENT IS FALSE, THERE IS N O S OLUTION I F THE STATEMENT IS TRUE, A LL R EAL N UMBERS WILL SOLVE Example: 2x – 3 > 2(x – 5) 2x – 3 > 2x – 10(distribute) -2x -2x(subtract 2x from both sides) -3 > -10 (note: you could add 3 to both sides to see 0 > -7) -3 is greater than -10, so All Real Numbers are solutions
