Text of Solving Linear Inequalities and Compound Inequalities

  • Solving Linear Inequalitiesand Compound Inequalities

  • Inequality Symbols is less thanis greater thanis less than or equal tois greater than or equal tois not equal to

  • Linear InequalityCan be written in the form ax+b0, ax+b0, or ax+b0 where a and b are real numbers and a0Has one variable to the first power.for example: 2x-3
  • Transformations for InequalitiesAdd/subtract the same number on each side of an inequality

    Multiply/divide by the same positive number on each side of an inequality

    If you multiply or divide by a negative number, you MUST flip the inequality sign!

  • Ex: Solve the inequality.2x-3
  • Graphing Linear InequalitiesRemember: < and > signs will have an open circle and signs will have a closed circle

    graph of graph of 4567-3-2-10

  • Example: Solve and graph the solution.6789

  • Example: Solve and graph the solution.This is a true statement, therefore the solution is ALL REAL NUMBERS.

  • Compound InequalityAn inequality joined by and or or.Examples and/intersection or/union

    think between think oars on a boat -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5

  • Example: Solve & graph.-9 < t+4 < 10-4 -4 -4-13 < t < 6

    Think between!-136

  • Solve & graph. -6x+9 < 3 or -3x-8 > 13 -6x < -6 -3x > 21 x > 1 or x < -7

    Flip signsThink oars-71
