Unformatted text preview: The value is a solution to the equation if, substituting that value in the equation, satisfies the equation. Example If x + 2 = 5 , Then if the solution is x = 3, then that means that substituting -3 in the equation gives 3+2 = 5 which equal to right hand side, 5 , so the value satisfies the equation. If the equal sign is replaces by inequality, then the chance of same value satisfying both inequality and equation occurs only when the inequality reads as less than equal ( ) or more than equal ()...
