Rules for Inequalities 1.7 - Inequalities

Linear Inequalities An inequality is linear if each term is constant or a multiple of the variable. To solve a linear inequality we isolate the variable on one side of the inequality sign. 1.7 - Inequalities

Example 1 – pg 80 # 20 Solve the linear inequality. Express the solution using interval notation and graph the solution set. 1.7 - Inequalities

Example 2 – pg 80 # 30 Solve the linear inequality. Express the solution using interval notation and graph the solution set. 1.7 - Inequalities

Nonlinear Inequalities Nonlinear inequalities are inequalities that involve squares or other powers of the variable other than 1. 1.7 - Inequalities
