Solving inequalities.

It explains how to solve inequalities. The basic rule for solving a given inequality is similar to that for solving equations -- do the same operation to both sides of inequality. The mini-lesson explains this in detail with examples.

Note: If you multiply or divide an inequality on both sides by a negative number, then you need to flip the direction of the inequality symbol.

Rearrange formulas to highlight a quantity of interest, using the same reasoning as in solving equations.

Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.

Graph the solutions to a linear inequality in two variables as a half-plane (excluding the boundary in the case of a strict inequality), and graph the solution set to a system of linear inequalities in two variables as the intersection of the corresponding half-planes.
