Unit 6 Lesson 1

An inequality is like an equation, but instead of an equal sign (=) it has one of these signs: < : less than ≤ : less than or equal to > : greater than ≥ : greater than or equal to teachers.henrico.k12.va.us/math/int10405/29lessons/29les7/solve_ineq_addNT1.ppt

To draw a number line, first draw a line with an arrow on each end. http://www.etap.org/demo/Algebra1/lesson2/instruction1tutor.html

Positive numbers increase to the right. Negative numbers “increase” to the left. http://www.etap.org/demo/Algebra1/lesson2/instruction1tutor.html

1. Draw a number line. 2. Put a circle on the correct number on the number line. ◦ Open circles for ◦ Closed circles for ≤ and ≥ 3. Draw an arrow in the correct direction on the number line.
