SOLVING 1-STEP INEQUALITIES 7 th Grade Mathematics

Solving 1-Step Inequalities When we solved 1-step equations, we did the inverse operation to both sides of the equal sign. When we solve 1-step inequalities, we will do the inverse operation on both sides of the inequality.

Addition & Subtraction Properties of Inequality You can add or subtract the same value from each side of an inequality. For addition: Since 7 > 3, then 7 + 4 > 3 + 4; Therefore, if a > b, then a + c > b + c For subtraction: Since 6 < 9, then 6 – 3 < 9 – 3; Therefore, if a < b, then a – c < b – c

Solving Inequalities by Addition or Subtraction Example #1: Solve n – 10 > 14. Graph the solution.

Solving Inequalities by Addition or Subtraction Example #2: Solve y + 7 ≥ 12. Graph the solution.

Solving Inequalities by Addition or Subtraction Example #3: Solve y + 3 < 4. Graph the solution.

Solving Inequalities by Addition or Subtraction Example #4: Solve w + 4 ≤ -5. Graph the solution.

Exploration – Shoulder Partners We can agree that -8 < 4. Work with your partner to decide what inequality to use in each of the situations below. 1.-8 ÷ 4 4 ÷ 4 2.-8 ÷ 2 4 ÷ 2 3.-8 ÷ -2 4 ÷ -2 4.-8 ÷ -4 4 ÷ -4 5.-8  2 4  2 6.-8  -2 4  -2 7.-8  -4 4  -4 8.-8  4 4  4

Multiplication & Division Properties of Inequality If you multiply or divide each side of an inequality by the same positive number, the direction of the inequality remains unchanged. If you multiply or divide each side of an inequality by the same negative number, the direction of the inequality is reversed.

Solving Inequalities by Multiplication or Division Example #5: Solve -3y ≤ - 27. Graph the solution.
