## Definition:

**Linear Equation** is composed of variables and constants. Its standard equation is in the form y = mx + b. It forms a straight line when graphed in a cartesian plane.

**Linear inequality **is a mathematical statement that contains two expressions, either numeric or algebraic, with the involvement of inequality symbols such as >, >, <, <, and ≠

## Summary:

**Linear Equations** are mathematical equations that contain variables and constants. These equations are composed of two expressions that are connected by an equality symbol, =.

**Steps in converting word problems into linear equations:**

- Read and understand each word in the statement
- Take note of the important words and the unknown/s mentioned in the statement.
- Assign variable/s to represent the unknown/s
- Translate the words into mathematical equation
- Solve for the unknown/s

**Linear Inequality** is a mathematical expression that uses inequality symbols such as:

- Greater than- >
- Less than- <
- Greater than or equal to- >
- Less than or equal to- <

## Examples:

**Linear Equations:**

- Four more than a number is 8.
- 4 + x = 8

- Twice a number less than 6 is 16.
- 2x – 6 = 16

- The product of 8 and a number decreased by 5 is 34.
- 8x – 5 = 34

**Linear Inequality:**

- The sum of 3x and 4 is at least 34.
- 3x + 4 > 34

- The product of 9 and 3x is less than 60.
- (9)(3x) < 60

- 5 increased by 5x is greater than 80.
- 5 + 5x > 80
