About Solving Linear Inequalities Part 2:

When we solve a linear inequality in one variable we turn to a few new properties. We utilize the addition property of inequality along with the multiplication property of inequality. These two properties allow us to isolate our variable on one side of the inequality.


Test Objectives
  • Demonstrate the ability to solve a linear inequality
  • Demonstrate the ability to write the solution in interval notation, and graphically
  • Demonstrate the ability to solve a three - part inequality
