Solving inequalities is just like solving equations, with one little twist. We'll be calling on all the algebra skills you've been learning for this crucial lesson.

LEARN IT

Don't panic when you see an inequality; all the rules of solving equations still apply. The only new concept: when multiplying or dividing an inequality by a negative number, you must flip the inequality symbol.

PRACTICE IT

NOTE: Graphing inequalities does not usually show up on the GED. It is useful for visualizing the SOLUTION after you solve an inequality and is good practice for college but isn't strictly necessary. If you are struggling to grasp the graphing, just focus your time and attention on SOLVING inequalities, which ALWAYS shows up on the GED Math test!
