Unit 2 Test Review!

7th Grade Pre-Algebra


Ms. Beaty


An inequalitystates that two quantities

either are not equal or may not be

equal. An inequality uses one of the

following symbols:

is less than

Fewer than, below

is greater than

More than, above

is less than or equal to

At most, no more than

is greater than or equal to

At least, no less than

graphing inequalities
Graphing inequalities
  • When a number is greater than or less than, you used an open dot on the graph.
    • I think of the dot as being empty. It does not contain the number it is on.
  • When a number is greater than or equal to or less than or equal to, you use a closed dot.
    • I think of the dot as being full. It contains the number it is on.
let s try one
Let’s try one!!!

3 + x < 9


The x is not isolated yet! What do we do??

That’s right! We do the inverse to isolate the variable. It’s the same way you have been solving the equations.

let s try it again
Let’s try it again!
  • 3 + x < 9
  • Isolate the variable by undoing the constant. Subtract 3 from both sides and you’re left with:

x < 6

  • This would read x is less than 6. This means that x can be any number less than 6.
  • In order to represent this, we put it on a graph.
graphing the inequality
Graphing the inequality
  • x < 6
  • Why did we use an open dot?
  • Why did the arrow point to the left?

3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

let s try a few more
Let’s try a few more!
  • X> 4.5
  • X < -3
  • X < -17
  • X > 4
lets try inequalities with words
Lets try inequalities with words!
  • All real numbers less than 5
  • All real numbers greater than -1
  • All real number less than or equal to ½
  • All real number greater than or equal to 0

Write an inequality for the situation.

There are at most 87 people in the school.


Write an inequality for the situation.

At least 31 pencils are on the tray.


Additional Example 3: Money Application

Edgar’s August profit of $137 was at least $20 higher than his July profit. What was July’s profit?

Let p represent the profit increase from July to August.

August profitwas at least$20 higher thanJuly’s profit.

$137≥ 20 +p

137 ≥ 20 + p

Subtract 20 from both sides.

-20 -20

117≥ p

p ≤ 117

Rewrite the inequality.

July’s profit was at most $117.


Antonio has read at least 12 more books than Benji. If Benji has read 32 books, at least how many books has Antonio read?




– 6 > 1



> 7



> (2)7


Additional Example 1A: Solving Two-Step Inequalities

Solve. Then graph the solution set on a number line.



– 6 > 1

+ 6 + 6

Add 6 to both sides.

Multiply both sides by 2.

y > 14


Additional Example 1C: Solving Two-Step Inequalities


4y – 5 < 11

4y – 5 < 11

+ 5 + 5

Add 5 to both sides.

4y < 16

4y < 16

Divide both sides by 4.



y < 4




, or 12

r ≤

Additional Example 2: Application

Sun-Li has $30 to spend at the carnival. Admission is $5, and each ride costs $2. What is the greatest number of rides she can ride?

Let r represent the number of rides Sun-Li can ride.

5 + 2r ≤ 30

– 5 –5

Subtract 5 from both sides.

2r ≤ 25

Divide both sides by 2.

2r ≤ 25

2 2

Sun-Li can ride only a whole number of rides, so the most she can ride is 12.


Check It Out: Example 2

Brice has $30 to take his brother and his friends to the movies. If each ticket costs $4.00, and he must buy tickets for himself and his brother, what is the greatest number of friends he can invite?

Let t represent the number of tickets.

8 + 4t ≤ 30

– 8 –8

Subtract 8 from both sides.

4t≤ 22

Divide both sides by 4.

4t≤ 22

4 4

t ≤ 5.5

Brice can only buy a whole number of tickets, so the most people he can invite is 5.

  • Our Goal: Isolate the Variable!
    • 1. Draw your slide to line up the equal signs.
    • 2. Undo the constant by using the inverse operation.
    • 3. Undo the variable term by using the inverse operation
    • 4. Write the solution.

What if there are two variable terms?
  • 2a = 7a +40

-7a -7a

-5a = 40

-5 -5

a = -8

  • 1. Get the variable terms on one side, and constants on the other.
  • Use inverse operation to isolate the variable.
