An inequality is a statement that two quantities are not equal. The quantities are compared by using one of the following signs:


Table of contents

When am I ever going to use it?

Your parents and grandparents want you to start eating a healthy breakfast. The table shows the nutritional requirements for a healthy breakfast cereal with milk.

Did you compare your favorite cereal's nutritional values to the healthy requirements on the table?

Answer

Healthy Breakfast Cereals (per serving)

If you did, you found out that you have been eating a healthy breakfast. Now you can prove it to your parents and grandparents.

1. Suppose your favorite cereal has 2 grams of fat, 7 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and 4 grams of sugar. Is it a healthy cereal?


Table of contents

Healthy Breakfast Cereals (per serving)

A cereal with 3 grams of fiber just makes it at being healthy. It needed at least 3 grams.

Answer

2. Is a cereal with 3 grams of fiber considered healthy?


Table of contents

Healthy Breakfast Cereals (per serving)

Answer

A cereal with 5 grams of sugar is still considered healthy but is very close to being unhealthy.

3. Is a cereal with 5 grams of sugar considered healthy?

Table of contents

Let's name the numbers that are solutions of the given inequality.

r > 10

Which of the following are solutions? {5, 10, 15, 20}

10 > 10 is not true

So, not a solution

5 > 10 is not true

So, not a solution

15 > 10 is true

So, 15 is a solution

20 > 10 is true

So, 20 is a solution

Answer:

{15, 20} are solutions of the inequality r > 10

Graphing Inequalities with Greater/Less Than or Equal To

An open circle on a number shows that the number is not part of the solution.

It is used with "greater than" and "less than".

The word equal is not included.

< >

A closed circle on a number shows that the number is part of the solution.

It is used with "greater than or equal to" and "less than or equal to".

< >


Table of contents

Remember!

Open circle means that number is not included in the solution set and is used to represent < or >.

Closed circle means the solution set includes that number and is used to represent or .

Graphing Inequalities

Do you know where to start?

How do represent the starting point?

Is there a special symbol?


Table of contents

Graphing Inequalities

Step 1: Figure out what the inequality solution requires. For example, rewrite x is less than one as x < 1.

Step 2: Draw a circle on the number line where the number being graphed is represented. In this case, an open circle since it represents the starting point for the inequality solution but is not part of the solution.

Step 3: Draw an arrow on the number line showing all possible solutions. For numbers greater than the variable, shade to the right of the boundary point. For numbers less than the variable, shade to the left of the boundary point.

Solve one-step inequalities by using addition.

Solve one-step inequalities by using subtraction.

Who remembers how to solve an algebraic equation?

x + 3 = 13

- 3 - 3

x = 10

Use the inverse of addition

Does 10 + 3 = 13

13 = 13

Be sure to check your answer!


Table of contents

Solving one-step inequalities is much like solving one-step equations.

To solve an inequality, you need to isolate the variable using the properties of inequalities and inverse operations.


Table of contents

To find the solution, isolate the variable x.

Remember, it is isolated when it appears by itself on one side of the equation.

12 > x + 6


Table of contents

Step 1: Since 6 is added to x and subtraction is the inverse of addition, subtract 6 from both sides to undo the addition.

12 > x + 6

- 6- 6

6 > x


Table of contents

Step 2: Check the computation. Substitute the end point of 6 for x. The end point is not included (open circle) since x < 6.

12 > x + 6

12 > 6 + 6

12 > 12

Now let's see what happens when we multiply or divide by negative numbers.

Sometimes you must multiply or divide to isolate the variable.

Multiplying or dividing both sides of an inequality by a negative number gives a surprising result.


Table of contents

1. Write down two numbers and put the appropriate inequality (< or >) between them.

2. Apply each rule to your original two numbers from step 1 and simplify. Write the correct inequality(< or >) between the answers.

A. Add 4

B. Subtract 4

C. Multiply by 4

D. Multiply by -5

E. Divide by 4

F. Divide by -4


Table of contents

3. What happened with the inequality symbol in your results?

4. Compare your results with the rest of the class.

5. What pattern(s) do you notice in the inequalities?

How do different operations affect inequalities?

Write a rule for inequalities.


Table of contents

Let's see what happens when we multiply this inequality by -1.

5 > -1

-1 5 ? -1 -1

-5 ? 1

-5 < 1

We know 5 is greater than -1

Multiply both sides by -1

Is -5 less than or greater than 1?

You know -5 is less than 1, so you should use <

What happened to the inequality symbol to keep the inequality statement true?


Table of contents

Helpful Hint

The direction of the inequality changes only if the number you are using to multiply or divide by is negative.

An inequality stays the same when you:

1. Add, subtract, multiply or divide by the same positive number on both sides

2. Add or subtract the same negative number on both sides

An inequality changes direction when you:

A cell phone plan offers free minutes for no more than 250 minutes per month. Define a variable and write an inequality for the possible number of free minutes. Graph the solution.

Let m = number of minutes

0 < m < 250

Why is zero a boundary?

It is not possible to use less than zero minutes. Therefore, zero is a second boundary.

The sum of 3 times a number and 2 lies between 8 and 11.

We found 3x + 2 but how will we translate "lies between 8 and 11"?

What inequality symbol will we use?

If 3x + 2 lies between 8 and 11, is it larger or smaller than 8?

Write an inequality. Pull tab to see if you are correct.

The light rail train charges $2.00 a ticket. Children 6 and under ride for free. Children over 6 and under 12 pay half fare and senior citizens (people over 65) get 25% off.

Write an inequality to describe x, the ages in years of all those who are eligible to receive reduced fares.

Read the problem over and write down which age groups receive a reduced fare.

Do people over 65? Who else?

Hint


Table of contents

Children who are 6 but less than 12 pay half. Children under 6 ride free. People 65 or older pay a reduced fare. How does that translate into an inequality?

Can we combine two groups?

What inequality symbols will we use?

Will this be an "and" inequality?

Could it be an "or" inequality?

We can combine all the children under 12. We would use x < 12.

For people that are 65 or older we would use x 65.

x < 12 or x 65

Does someone age 25 get a reduced fare?

Draw a graph to illustrate the inequality.

Objectives

Recognize special cases of solution sets when solving compound inequalities.

Graph solution sets of no solution and Real Numbers.

Special Solutions

A solution of a compound inequality joined by and is any number that makes both inequalities true.

When there is no number that makes both inequalities true, we say there is no solution.

When all numbers make both inequalities true, we say the solution is the set of Real Numbers.

the Set of Real Numbers

2x > 18 AND -3x > 12

2x >18 AND -3x > 12

2 2 -3 -3

x > 9 AND x < -4

The solution set is No Solution since there are no numbers that are both > 9 and < -4.

We write this solution as { } or 0

Another Example

-2x + 3 > 17 OR 5(x + 2) > -40

-2x + 3 > 17 OR 5x + 10 > -40

- 3 - 3 - 10 -10

-2x>14 OR 5x > -50

-2 -2 5 5

x < -7 x > -10

The solution set is Reals since all numbers are either < -7 or > -10.

We write this solution set as R.

3. 3x + 8 > 23 and -2(x - 2) > -14
