Section 1-5 Solving Inequalities
Unit One

In this lesson you will solve and graph inequalities; and write and solve compound inequalities.
An Inequality is a relation between two expressions that are not equal. Using signs like : Not equal ≠ Less than < Greater than > Less than or equal to ≤ Greater than or equal to ≥ The solution of an inequality is the numbers that make it true. The solution can be a range of numbers and When solving inequalities you use the same method for solving equations. However, when you multiply or divide by a negative number the inequality sign flips.

Example: Solving and graphing an inequality
Graph the solution on a number line. 2 Closed circle when ≥ or ≤ Solving and graphing multi-step inequalities video. (1 ex, 1 practice)

Compound inequalities: two inequalities joined together with the word “and” or “or”
AND inequality Writing and solving compound inequality “AND” video real world fitness word problem x ≤ 6 x > 2 2 6 AND means that a solution makes BOTH inequalities true. Where the lines overlap

OPEN circle when < , >
OR inequality Writing and solving a compound inequality containing OR video. 2 ex) 1 word problem -5 -1 OPEN circle when < , >

ALWAYS, NEVER, SOMETIMES?
If the statement is false, then the inequality has no solution If the statement is always true, ALL real numbers are solutions Inequalities with no solution or all real numbers as solutions video. 1 ex) 1 practice, party budget 4 -5 -4 5 ALWAYS All real #’s NEVER No solution
