How Do You Solve a Decimal Inequality Using Addition?

How Do You Solve a Decimal Inequality Using Addition?

Note:

To solve an inequality containing decimals for a variable, focus on isolating that variable on one side of the inequality. In this tutorial, you'll see how to add decimals in order to isolate the variable and find the answer to the inequality!

Background Tutorials

Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation.

Doing math with paper and pencil can come in real handy, so make sure you're comfortable adding decimals by hand. After all, you don't want the calculator to be a crutch!

Interpret statements of inequality as statements about the relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram.

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 :)

Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.

Ever wondered what rules you're allowed to follow when you're working with inequalities? Well, one of those rules is called the addition property of inequality, and it basically says that if you add a number from one side of an inequality, you have to add that same number from the other side of the inequality as well. Watch the tutorial to see how this looks in terms of algebra!
