Unformatted text preview: In some cases there can be infinite solutions. It is different from determining the value from an equation since you can mostly only have a discrete value of solutions. If the value is a solution, it must fulfill the agreement that both sides are equal, unlike in inequalities where they could be less, equal or greater than each other. There are no cases where that will work unless you replace the equal sign with a less than or equal to or greater than or equal to. Then only that works. 3x+2 > 2x+3 Is 5 a solution? Is 1 a solution? HINT: Solve this inequality. .. and then plug and chug Solution: I believe the solution to your inequality is 5. 3x+2 > 2x+3 3(5)+2>2(5)+3 15+2>10+3 17>13  This is a true statement. 17 is greater than 13....
