**6.1 – Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities**

Today we will learn how to: Graph linear inequalities in one variable Solve one-step linear inequalities

3
**6.1 – Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities**

The GRAPH of a linear inequality in one variable is the set of points on a number line that represent all solutions of the inequality.

**6.1 – Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities**

Solving a linear inequality in one variable is much like solving a linear equation in one variable. To solve the inequality, you get the variable on one side using inverse operations.

**6.1 – Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities**

Transformations that produce equivalent inequalities Add the same number to each side x – 3 < 5 Subtract the same number from each side x + 6 ≥ 10

**6.1 – Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities**

USING MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION The operations used to solve linear inequalities are similar to those used to solve linear equations, but there are important differences. When you multiply or divide each side of an inequality by a negative number, you must reverse the inequality symbol to maintain a true statement. For instance, to reverse >, replace it with <.

12
**6.1 – Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities**

Transformations that produce equivalent inequalities Multiply each side by the same positive number ½ x > 3 Divide each side by the same positive number 3x ≤ 9

13
**6.1 – Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities**

Transformations that produce equivalent inequalities Multiply each side by the same negative number and reverse the sign -x < 4 Divide each side by the same negative number and reverse the sign -2x ≤ 6
