Definition:

Inequalities are mathematical expressions that use the symbols >, <, ≥ and ≤. Solving inequalities means to find a range or set of values that an unknown variable can take and can still satisfy the given inequality.

RULES IN INEQUALITIES

The rules of equations and inequalities are almost alike. There are just few rules that we need to be reminded of when dealing with inequalities. Please take note of the following key points. 

KEY POINTS

  1. If you add and subtract the same number to both sides of an inequality, the inequality remains true. 
  2. If you multiply or divide both sides of an inequality by the same positive number, the inequality remains true. 
  3. But if you multiply or divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number, the inequality is no longer true. In fact, the inequality becomes reversed
