Solving Linear Inequalities

Contributed By


From Elizabeth Stapel at Purplemath, this module helps students understand how to solve linear inequalities with an introduction to the topic using both inequality notation and a graphic representation to express the inequality. This section also briefly covers set notation and interval notation. The next two pages of the site give elementary examples and advanced examples. The elementary examples are simple problems with solutions and an interactive widget on which students can try their knowledge. The advanced examples include real-world word problems in physics, finance, and chemistry that require students to identify and solve the linear inequality. Less
