1.1 Stuff

• A linear equation in one variable is an equation that has one unknown and the unknown is written to the first power. Linear equations in one variable can be written in the form

ax + b = 0

where a and b are real numbers and .

1.4 Stuff

• A linear inequality in one variable is an inequality that can be written in one of the following forms

ax + b > c

ax + b < c

ax + b c

ax + b c

where a, b, and c are real numbers and a ≠ 0.

1.4 Stuff

• Let a and b represent two real numbers with a < b.

• A closed interval, denoted by [a, b], consists of all real numbers x for which .

• An open interval, denoted by (a, b), consists of all real numbers x for which a < x < b.

• Thehalf-open, orhalf-closed, intervals, are (a, b], consisting of all real numbers x for which and [a, b) consisting of all real numbers x for which

In each of these definitions, a is called the left endpoint and b the right endpoint.

1.4 Stuff

If a < b, then a + c < b + c.

• Multiplication (and Division)

If c > 0 and a < b, then ac < bc.

If c < 0 and a < b, then ac>bc.
