This tutorial provides a great real world application of math. See how to turn a word problem into an inequality. Then solve the inequality by performing the order of operations in reverse. Don't forget that if you multiply or divide by a negative number, you MUST flip the sign of the inequality! That's one of the big differences between solving equalities and solving inequalities.
Inequalities come up all the time when you're working algebra problems. In this tutorial you'll learn what an inequality is, and you'll see all the common inequality symbols that you're likely to see :)
Knowing the mathematical meaning of words allows you to decipher word problems and gives you the power to write your own word problems, too! Take a look at these words and learn their mathematical translations.
You can't do algebra without working with variables, but variables can be confusing. If you've ever wondered what variables are, then this tutorial is for you!
Solving an inequality for a variable? Just perform the order of operations in reverse! Don't forget that if you multiply or divide by a negative number, you MUST flip the sign of the inequality! That's one of the big differences between solving equalities and solving inequalities.
Ever wondered what rules you're allowed to follow when you're working with inequalities? Well, one of those rules is called the division property of inequality, and it basically says that if you divide one side of an inequality by a number, you can divide the other side of the inequality by the same number. However, you have to be very careful about the direction of the inequality! Watch the tutorial to see how this looks in terms of algebra!
