Copyright © 2013, 2009, 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. Basic Concepts A compound inequality consists of two inequalities joined by the words and or or. 2x > –5 and 2x 8 x or x – 2 < –6

4
Copyright © 2013, 2009, 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. Example Determine whether the given x-values are solutions to the compound inequalities. x x = 4, –4 Solution x Substitute 4 into the given compound inequality True and True Both inequalities are true, so 4 is a solution.

5

Example (cont) Determine whether the given x-values are solutions to the compound inequalities. x x = 4, –4 Solution x Substitute –4 into the given compound inequality. – – 2 3 True and False To be a solution both inequalities must be true, so –4 is not a solution.

Copyright © 2013, 2009, 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. Symbolic Solutions and Number Lines We can use a number line to graph solutions to compound inequalities, such as x –3. x < 7 x > –3 x –3 Note: A bracket, either [ or ] or a closed circle is used when an inequality contains or. A parenthesis, either ( or ), or an open circle is used when an inequality contains.

Example Write each expression in interval notation. a. –3 x < 7 b. x 4 c. x < –3 or x 5 d. {x|x > 0 and x 5} e. {x|x 2 or x 5}

13
Copyright © 2013, 2009, 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. Example Solve 2x + 3 –3 or 2x Solution 2x + 3 –3 or 2x x –6 or 2x 2 x –3 or x 1 The solution set may be written as (, 3] [1, )
