Solving Inequalities


The chapter opens with a review of inequality symbols and graphs of simple inequality statements on number lines. The students review the difference between the properties of equality and inequality. They apply the properties of inequality to solve simple inequalities and compound inequalities such as conjunctions and disjunctions. The chapter concludes by discussing absolute value equations and inequalities.
