### Inequalities:An Introduction

Unit 5

Day 1

An inequality is like an equation, but instead of an equal sign (=) it has one of these signs:

< : less than

≤ : less than or equal to

> : greater than

≥ : greater than or equal to

To draw a number line, first draw a line with an arrow on each end.

Positive numbers increase to the right.

Negative numbers “increase” to the left.

How to graph an inequality:http://www-grms.stjohns.k12.fl.us/teams/Wakulla/032E7289-0118C716.12/Microsoft%20PowerPoint%20-%20Inequalities%20on%20a%20numberline%20b.pdf

• Draw a number line.

• Put a circle on the correct number on the number line.

• Open circles for < and >

• Closed circles for ≤ and ≥

• Draw an arrow in the correct direction on the number line.
