Lesson 11: Solution Sets for Equations and Inequalities Student Outcomes Students understand that an equation with variables is often viewed as a question asking for the set of values one can assign to the variables of the equation to make the equation a true statement. They see the equation as a “filter” that sifts through al l numbers in the domain of the variables, sorting those numbers into two disjoint sets: the solution set and the set of numbers for which the equation is false. Students understand the commutative, associate, and distributive properties as identities (i.e., equations whose solution sets are the set of all values in the domain of the variables). Classwork Example 1 (2 minutes) Consider the equation shown in Example 1 of your student materials, ? 2 = 3? + 4 , where ? represents a real number. Since we have not stated the value of ? , this is not a number sentence. Example 1 Consider the equation, ? ? = ?? + ? , where ? represents a real number. a. Are the expressions ? ? and ?? + ? algebraically equivalent? No. Then, we cannot guarantee there will be any real value of ? that will make the equation true. b. The following table shows how we might “sift” through various values to assign to the variable symbol ? in the hunt for values that would make the equation true. ? -VALUE THE EQUATION TRUTH VALUE Let ? = ? ? ? = ?(?) + ? FALSE Let ? = ? ? ? = ?(?) + ? FALSE Let ? = ? ? ? = ?(?) + ? FALSE Let ? = −? (−?) ? = ?(−?) + ? FALSE Let ? = ? ? ? = ?(?) + ? TRUE Let ? = ? ? ? = ?(?) + ? FALSE Let ? = ?? ?? ? = ?(??) + ? FALSE Let ? = −? (−?) ? = ?(−?) + ? FALSE

Of course, we should sift through ALL the real numbers if we are seeking all values that make the equation ? 2 = 3? + 4 true. (This makes for quite a large table!) So far, we have found that setting ? equal to 4 yields a true statement. Look at the image in your student materials. Can you see what is happening here and how it relates to what we have been discussing? The numbers are going down the road and being accepted into the solution set or rejected based on whether or not the equation is true. There happens to be just one more value we can assign to x that makes ? 2 = 3? + 4 a true statement. Would you like to continue the search to find it?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
