Solving inequalities When working with inequalities, treat them exactly like equations (except, if you multiply or divide  each side of the inequality by a negative number, you must reverse the direction of the inequality). Example 1 Solve for  x : 2  x  + 4 > 6.  Answers are sometimes written in  set builder notation  {  x x  > 1}, which is read “the set of all  x  such  that  x  is greater than 1.”
