Inequalities
• Solving – finding the set of numbers that
satisfy the inequality.
• English phrases:

Graphing Inequalities
Inequalities can be graphed on a number line by
marking all of the points on the line that correspond
to numbers that will make the inequality a true
statement.
•An open circle indicates that a point is not part of
the solution
•A closed circle indicates that a point is part of the
solution

Exercise Set 6.4 #3, #9

2 x 5
Solving Linear Inequalities
The procedure for solving linear inequalities
is the same as the procedure for solving linear
equations, with one important exception:
When multiplying or dividing both sides of
the inequality by a negative number, reverse
the direction of the inequality symbol,
changing the sense of the inequality.
