**Inequalities MCC7.EE4: Solving and Graphing Inequalities**

What is an inequality? A mathematical expression that states two quantities are not equal or may be equal. Ex. 2n + 3 > 9

2
**≥ Greater Than or Equal To**

Inequalities How do we show an inequality in math? By using one of these symbols in place of an “=” sign. Symbols > Greater Than ≥ Greater Than or Equal To < Less Than ≤ Less Than or Equal To

3
Inequality KEY WORDS at least - means greater than or equal to no more than - means less than or equal to more than - means greater than less than - means less than

4
**Inequalities Graphing Symbols**

5
**Algebraic Inequality These are inequalities that contain a variable.**

Ex: a > 9 or 17 ≤ y A value of the variable that makes the inequality true is a solution of the inequality. An inequality may have more than one solution. Together, all of the solutions are called the solution set.

6
**Algebraic Inequality We can graph these solutions on a number line.**

If we graph a > 9 it will look like this: | −1 |0 |1 |2 |3 |4 |5 |6 |7 |8 |9 | 10 | 11 | 12

7
**Algebraic Inequalities Cont…**

What does it look like when we graph 17 ≤ y ? What is the difference in the two graphs of these inequalities?

8
**Graphs of inequalities**

You can graph the solutions of an inequality on a number line. If the variable is “greater than” or “less than” a number, then that number is indicated with an open circle.

10
**Graphs of inequalities**

If the variable is “greater than or equal to” or “less than or equal to” a number, that number is indicated with a closed circle.

12
**Graphs of inequalities**

a > 9 means that a can be any value greater than 9. But can a be 9? No because 9 is not greater than 9. Therefore when we graph this we use an open whole on our arrow like this: The open whole shows that we are leaving 9 out of our solution because it is not larger than 9.

13
**Write an inequality for each situation:**

Writing Inequalities Write an inequality for each situation: There are at least 25 students in the auditorium. Number of students ≥ 25 “At least” means greater than or equal to. No more than 150 people can occupy the room. Room capacity ≤ 150 “No more than” means less than or equal to.
