Problem of the Day Find an integer x that makes the following three inequalities true: 9 < x < 14, 2x > 22, and –x > –13 x = 12

Learn to solve and graph inequalities by using multiplication or division.

If you multiply or divide BY a negative, switch your sign!
The steps for solving inequalities by multiplying or dividing are the same as for solving equations, with one exception. If both sides of an inequality are multiplied or divided by a negative number, the inequality symbol must be reversed. Copy in Notes: If you multiply or divide BY a negative, switch your sign!

Example 1: Solving Inequalities by Multiplying or Dividing
Solve and graph. a 4 12 < 4 • 12 < 4 • a 4 Multiply both sides by 4. 48 < a, or a > 48

Check According to the graph, 49 should be a solution because 49 > 48, and 47 should not be a solution because 47 < 48. 12 < a 4 12 < a 4 Substitute 49 for a. Substitute 47 for a. 12 < 49 4 ? 12 < 47 4 ? 12 < 12.25 ? 12 < 11.75 ? x So 49 is a solution. So 47 is not a solution.

Example 2: Solving Inequalities by Multiplying or Dividing
Solve and graph. –9b ≤ 45 45 -9 -9b -9 Divide both sides by -9; ≤ changes to ≥. b ≥ -5 –5

Example 3 Solve and graph. b 5 16 > b 5 Multiply both sides by 5.
5 • 16 > 5 • b 5 Multiply both sides by 5. 80 > b, or b < 80

Example 4 Solve and graph. -4a > 12 12 –4 -4a –4 Divide both sides by -4; ≤ changes to ≥. a < -3 –3

Example 5 Solve and graph. 3x ≤ -18
