Unformatted text preview: determine the solution in an equation. However, an equation usually has only one number that makes the equation true, and an inequality has several numbers or a solution set that makes the inequality true. If you replace an equal sign of an equation with an inequality sign the only time when the same value would be a solution to both the equation and the inequality is if it were replaced with a greater than or equal to sign ( ≥) or a less than or equal to sign (≤). For the Class: Tell me if 8 is a solution to this inequality 3x – 5 ≤ 13. If it is not a solution provide one that is....
