WK3 DQ2 Due Date: Week Three, Day 4 [post to the Main forum] How do you know if a value is a solution for an inequality? How is this different from determining if a value is a solution to an equation? If you replace the equal sign of an equation with an inequality sign, is there ever a time when the same value will be a solution to both the equation and the inequality? Write an inequality and provide a value that may or may not be a solution to the inequality. A value is a solution for an inequality if the replacement of the variable makes the inequality true. The set of all solutions is called the solution set. The way in which you determine a solution in an inequality does not differ from how you

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....
