Solving inequalities

Here you will learn about solving inequalities, including how to solve linear inequalities, identify integers in the solution set, and represent solutions on a number line.

Students will first learn about solving simple inequalities as part of expressions and equations in 6th grade math and expand that knowledge in 7th grade math.

What is solving inequalities?

Solving inequalities allows you to calculate the values of an unknown variable in an inequality.

Solving inequalities is similar to solving equations, but where an equation has one unique solution, an inequality has a range of solutions.

In order to solve an inequality, you need to balance the inequality on each side of the inequality sign in the same way as you would balance an equation on each side of the equal sign. Solutions can be integers, decimals, positive numbers, or negative numbers.

For example,

Solve

\begin{aligned} 2x + 1 &= 9 \\ 2x &= 8 \\ x&= 4 \end{aligned}

4 is the only solution to this
equation.

Solve

\begin{aligned} 2x + 1 &< 9 \\ 2x &< 8 \\ x&< 4 \end{aligned}

x can be any value that is less
than 4.

This of the
For example,

\begin{aligned} 1 - 2x &< 9 \\ -2x &< 8 \\ x&> -4 \end{aligned}

x can be any value that is greater than -4.

Common Core State Standards

• Grade 6 – Expressions and Equations (6.EE.B.8) Write an inequality of the form x > c or x < c to represent a constraint or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem. Recognize that inequalities of the form x > c or x < c have infinitely many solutions; represent solutions of such inequalities on number line diagrams.
• Grade 7 – Expressions and Equations (7.EE.4b) Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form px + q > r or px + q < r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Graph the solution set of the inequality and interpret it in the context of the problem. For example: As a salesperson, you are paid \$50 per week plus \$3 per sale. This week you want your pay to be at least \100. Write an inequality for the number of sales you need to make, and describe the solutions. How to solve inequalities In order to solve inequalities: Rearrange the inequality so that all the unknowns are on one side of the inequality sign. Rearrange the inequality by dividing by the \textbf{x} coefficient so that \textbf{‘x’} is isolated. Write your solution with the inequality symbol. Solving linear inequalities examples Example 1: solving linear inequalities. 4 x+6<26 In this case you are subtracting 6 from both sides. \begin{aligned} 4x+6&<26\\ 4x&<20 \end{aligned} This leaves 4x on the left side of the inequality sign and 20 on the right side. 2 Rearrange the inequality by dividing by the \textbf{x} coefficient so that \textbf{‘x’} is isolated. In this case you need to divide both sides by 4. \begin{aligned} 4x&<20\\ x&<5 \end{aligned} This leaves x on the left side of the inequality sign and 5 on the right side. 3 Write your solution with the inequality symbol. Any value less than 5 satisfies the inequality. Example 2: solving linear inequalities 5x-4 \geq 26 In this case you need to add 4 to both sides. \begin{aligned} 5x-4&\geq26\\ 5x&\geq30 \end{aligned} This leaves 5x on the left side of the inequality sign and 30 on the right side. In this case you need to divide both sides by 5. \begin{aligned} 5x&\geq30\\ x&\geq6 \end{aligned} This leaves x on the left side of the inequality sign and 6 on the right side. Any value greater than or equal to 6 satisfies the inequality. Example 3: solving linear inequalities with parentheses 3(x-4)\leq12 Let’s start by expanding the parentheses. 3x-12\leq12 Then you need to add 12 to both sides. \begin{aligned} 3x-12&\leq12\\ 3x&\leq24 \end{aligned} This leaves 3x on the left side of the inequality sign and 24 on the right side. In this case you need to divide both sides by 3. \begin{aligned} 3x&\leq24\\ x&\leq8 \end{aligned} This leaves x on the left side of the inequality sign and 8 on the right side. Any value less than or equal to 8 satisfies the inequality. Example 4: solving linear inequalities with unknowns on both sides 5x-6 > 2x + 15 In this case you need to subtract 2x from both sides. \begin{aligned} 5x-6&>2x+15\\ 3x-6&>15 \end{aligned} This leaves 3x-6 on the left side of the inequality sign and 15 on the right side. Rearrange the inequality so that \textbf{‘x’} s are on one side of the inequality sign and numbers on the other. In this case you need to add 6 to both sides. \begin{aligned} 3x-6&>15\\ 3x&>21 \end{aligned} This leaves 3x on the left side of the inequality sign and 21 on the right side. \begin{aligned} 3x&>21\\ x&>7 \end{aligned} This leaves x on the left side of the inequality sign and 7 on the right side. Any value greater than 7 satisfies the inequality. Example 5: solving linear inequalities with fractions \cfrac{x+3}{5}<2 Rearrange the inequality to eliminate the denominator. In this case you need to multiply both sides by 5. \begin{aligned} \cfrac{x+3}{5}&<2\\ x+3&<10 \end{aligned} In this case you need to subtract 3 from both sides. \begin{aligned} \cfrac{x+3}{5}&<2\\ x+3&<10\\ x&<7 \end{aligned} Any value less than 7 satisfies the inequality. Example 6: solving linear inequalities with non-integer solutions In this case you need to subtract 6 from both sides. \begin{aligned} 6x+1&\geq4\\ 6x&\geq3 \end{aligned} In this case you need to divide both sides by 6. \begin{aligned} 6x+1&\geq4\\ 6x&\geq3\\ x&\geq\cfrac{3}{6} \end{aligned} This can be simplified to \, \cfrac{1}{2} \, or the decimal equivalent. x\geq\cfrac{1}{2} Any value greater than or equal to \, \cfrac{1}{2} \, satisfies the inequality. Example 7: solving linear inequalities and representing solutions on a number line Represent the solution on a number line: 2x-7 < 5 In this case you need to add 7 to both sides. \begin{aligned} 2x-7&<5\\ 2x&<12 \end{aligned} In this case you need to divide both sides by 2. \begin{aligned} 2x-7& <5\\ 2x& <12\\ x& < 6 \end{aligned} Represent your solution on a number line. Any value less than 6 satisfies the inequality. An open circle is required at 6 and the values lower than 6 indicated with an arrow. Example 8: solving linear inequalities with negative x coefficients In this case you need to subtract 1 from both sides. \begin{aligned} 1-2x & <7 \\ -2x & <6 \end{aligned} In this case you need to divide both sides by negative 2. 6 \div-2=-3 Change the direction of the inequality sign. Because you divided by a negative number, you also need to change the direction of the inequality sign. \begin{aligned} 1-2x & <7 \\ -2x & <6 \\ x &>-3 \end{aligned} Example 9: solving linear inequalities and listing integer values that satisfy the inequality List the integer values that satisfy: 3 < x+1\leq8 In this case you need to subtract 1 from each part. \begin{aligned} 3&<x+1\leq8\\ 2&<x\leq7\\ \end{aligned} List the integer values satisfied by the inequality. 2<x\leq7 2 is not included in the solution set. 7 is included in the solution set. The integers that satisfy this inequality are: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Example 10: solving linear inequalities and listing integer values that satisfy the inequality 7\leq4x\leq20 In this case you need to divide each part by 4. \begin{aligned} 7\leq \, & 4x\leq20\\ \cfrac{7}{4}\leq & \; x \leq5 \end{aligned} \cfrac{7}{4} \leq x \leq 5 \cfrac{7}{4} \, is included in the solution set but it is not an integer. The first integer higher is 2. 5 is also included in the solution set. The integers that satisfy this inequality are: Example 11: solving linear inequalities and representing the solution on a number line -3<2x+5\leq7 In this case you need to subtract 5 from each part. \begin{aligned} -3<2x+5&\leq7\\ -8<2x&\leq2 \end{aligned} Rearrange the inequality so that \textbf{‘x’} is isolated. In this case you need to divide each part by \bf{2} . \begin{aligned} -3<2x+5&\leq7\\ -8<2x&\leq2\\ -4<x&\leq1 \end{aligned} Represent the solution set on a the number line -4<x\leq1 -4 is not included in the solution set so requires an open circle. 1 is included in the solution set so requires a closed circle. Put a solid line between the circles to indicate all the values that satisfy the solution set. Teaching tips for solving inequalities • Students should master solving simple inequalities (one-step inequalities) before moving on to two-step inequalities (or multi-step inequalities). • Foster student engagement by practicing solving inequalities through classroom games such as BINGO rather than daily worksheets. • Student practice problems should have a variety of inequalities such as inequalities with fractions, negative numbers, and parentheses. (see examples above) Easy mistakes to make • Solutions as inequalities Not including the inequality symbol in the solution is a common mistake. An inequality has a range of values that satisfy it rather than a unique solution so the inequality symbol is essential. For example, when solving x + 3 < 7 giving a solution of 4 or x = 4 is incorrect, the answer must be written as an inequality x < 4 . • Balancing inequalities Errors can be made with solving equations and inequalities by not applying inverse operations or not balancing the inequalities. Work should be shown step-by-step with the inverse operations applied to both sides of the inequality. For example, when solving x + 3 < 7 , adding 3 to both sides rather than subtracting 3 from both sides.

Solving inequalities FAQs Solving inequalities is where you calculate the values that an unknown variable can be in an inequality. To solve an inequality, you need to balance the inequality on each side of the inequality sign in the same way as you would balance an equation on each side of the equal sign. Solutions can be integers, decimals, positive numbers, or negative numbers. The next lessons are • Types of graphs • Math formulas • Coordinate plane Still stuck?

Privacy Overview Solving Inequalities Related Pages Solving Equations Algebraic Expressions More Algebra Lessons In these lessons, we will look at the rules, approaches, and techniques for solving inequalities. The following figure shows how to solve two-step inequalities. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions. The rules for solving inequalities are similar to those for solving linear equations. However, there is one exception when multiplying or dividing by a negative number. To solve an inequality, we can: • Add the same number to both sides. • Subtract the same number from both sides. • Multiply both sides by the same positive number. • Divide both sides by the same positive number. • Multiply both sides by the same negative number and reverse the sign. • Divide both sides by the same negative number and reverse the sign. Inequalities Of The Form “x + a > b” or “x + a < b” Example: Solve x + 7 < 15 Solution: x + 7 < 15 x + 7 – 7 < 15 – 7 x < 8 Inequalities Of The Form “x – a < b” or “x – a > b” Example: Solve x – 6 > 14 Solution: x – 6 > 14 x – 6+ 6 > 14 + 6 x > 20 Example: Solve the inequality x – 3 + 2 < 10 Solution: x – 3 + 2 < 10 x – 1 < 10 x – 1 + 1 < 10 + 1 x < 11 Inequalities Of The Form “a – x < b” or “a – x > b” Example: Solve the inequality 7 – x < 9 Solution: 7 – x < 9 7 – x – 7 < 9 – 7 – x < 2 x > –2 (remember to reverse the symbol when multiplying by –1) Example: Solve the inequality 12 > 18 – y Solution: 12 > 18 – y 18 – y < 12 18 – y – 18 < 12 –18 – y < –6 y > 6 (remember to reverse the symbol when multiplying by –1) Inequalities Of The Form “ < b” or “ > b” Solving linear inequalities with like terms. If an equation has like terms, we simplify the equation and then solve it. We do the same when solving inequalities with like terms. Example: Evaluate 3x – 8 + 2x < 12 Solution: 3x – 8 + 2x < 12 3x + 2x < 12 + 8 5x < 20 x < 4 Example: Evaluate 6x – 8 > x + 7 Solution: 6x – 8 > x + 7 6x – x > 7 + 8 5x > 15 x > 3 Example: Evaluate 2(8 – p) ≤ 3(p + 7) Solution: 2(8 – p) ≤ 3(p + 7) 16 – 2p ≤ 3p + 21 16 – 21 ≤ 3p + 2p –5 ≤ 5p –1 ≤ p p ≥ –1 (a < b is equivalent to b > a) An Introduction To Solving Inequalities Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities In One Variable The solutions to linear inequalities can be expressed several ways: using inequalities, using a graph, or using interval notation. The steps to solve linear inequalities are the same as linear equations, except if you multiply or divide by a negative when solving for the variable, you must reverse the inequality symbol. Example: Solve. Express the solution as an inequality, graph and interval notation. x + 4 > 7 -2x > 8 x/-2 > -1 x - 9 ≥ -12 7x > -7 x - 9 ≤ -12 Solving Two-Step Linear Inequalities In One Variable Example: Solve. Express the solution as an inequality, graph and interval notation. 3x + 4 ≥ 10 -2x - 1 > 9 10 ≥ -3x - 2 -8 > 5x + 12 Solving Linear Inequalities Main rule to remember: If you multiply or divide by a negative number, the inequality flips direction. Examples of how to solve linear inequalities are shown: Example: Solve: 3x - 6 > 8x - 7 Students learn that when solving an inequality, such as -3x is less than 12, the goal is the same as when solving an equation: to get the variable by itself on one side. Note that when multiplying or dividing both sides of an inequality by a negative number, the direction of the inequality sign must be switched. For example, to solve -3x is less than 12, divide both sides by -3, to get x is greater than -4. And when graphing an inequality on a number line, less than or greater than is shown with an open dot, and less than or equal to or greater than or equal to is shown with a closed dot.

Now that we have learned the operations on signed numbers, we will use those same rules to solve equations that involve negative numbers. We will also study techniques for solving and graphing inequalities having one unknown. SOLVING EQUATIONS INVOLVING SIGNED NUMBERS Upon completing this section you should be able to solve equations involving signed numbers. Example 1 Solve for x and check: x + 5 = 3 Using the same procedures learned in chapter 2, we subtract 5 from each side of the equation obtaining Example 2 Solve for x and check: - 3x = 12 Dividing each side by -3, we obtain LITERAL EQUATIONS • Identify a literal equation. • Apply previously learned rules to solve literal equations. An equation having more than one letter is sometimes called a literal equation . It is occasionally necessary to solve such an equation for one of the letters in terms of the others. The step-by-step procedure discussed and used in chapter 2 is still valid after any grouping symbols are removed. Example 1 Solve for c: 3(x + c) - 4y = 2x - 5c First remove parentheses. At this point we note that since we are solving for c, we want to obtain c on one side and all other terms on the other side of the equation. Thus we obtain Sometimes the form of an answer can be changed. In this example we could multiply both numerator and denominator of the answer by (- l) (this does not change the value of the answer) and obtain The advantage of this last expression over the first is that there are not so many negative signs in the answer. The most commonly used literal expressions are formulas from geometry, physics, business, electronics, and so forth. Notice in this example that r was left on the right side and thus the computation was simpler. We can rewrite the answer another way if we wish. GRAPHING INEQUALITIES • Use the inequality symbol to represent the relative positions of two numbers on the number line. • Graph inequalities on the number line. The symbols are inequality symbols or order relations and are used to show the relative sizes of the values of two numbers. We usually read the symbol as "greater than." For instance, a > b is read as "a is greater than b." Notice that we have stated that we usually read a < b as a is less than b. But this is only because we read from left to right. In other words, "a is less than b" is the same as saying "b is greater than a." Actually then, we have one symbol that is written two ways only for convenience of reading. One way to remember the meaning of the symbol is that the pointed end is toward the lesser of the two numbers. In simpler words this definition states that a is less than b if we must add something to a to get b. Of course, the "something" must be positive. If you think of the number line, you know that adding a positive number is equivalent to moving to the right on the number line. This gives rise to the following alternative definition, which may be easier to visualize. Example 1 3 < 6, because 3 is to the left of 6 on the number line. Example 2 - 4 < 0, because -4 is to the left of 0 on the number line. Example 3 4 > - 2, because 4 is to the right of -2 on the number line. Example 4 - 6 < - 2, because -6 is to the left of -2 on the number line. The mathematical statement x < 3, read as "x is less than 3," indicates that the variable x can be any number less than (or to the left of) 3. Remember, we are considering the real numbers and not just integers, so do not think of the values of x for x < 3 as only 2, 1,0, - 1, and so on. As a matter of fact, to name the number x that is the largest number less than 3 is an impossible task. It can be indicated on the number line, however. To do this we need a symbol to represent the meaning of a statement such as x < 3. The symbols ( and ) used on the number line indicate that the endpoint is not included in the set. Example 5 Graph x < 3 on the number line. Note that the graph has an arrow indicating that the line continues without end to the left. Example 6 Graph x > 4 on the number line. Example 7 Graph x > -5 on the number line. Example 8 Make a number line graph showing that x > - 1 and x < 5. (The word "and" means that both conditions must apply.) Example 9 Graph - 3 < x < 3. Example 10 x >; 4 indicates the number 4 and all real numbers to the right of 4 on the number line. The symbols [ and ] used on the number line indicate that the endpoint is included in the set. Example 13 Write an algebraic statement represented by the following graph. Example 14 Write an algebraic statement for the following graph.  -4 and 5. Example 15 Write an algebraic statement for the following graph.  -2 SOLVING INEQUALITIES Upon completing this section you should be able to solve inequalities involving one unknown. The solutions for inequalities generally involve the same basic rules as equations. There is one exception, which we will soon discover. The first rule, however, is similar to that used in solving equations. If the same quantity is added to each side of an inequality , the results are unequal in the same order. Example 1 If 5 < 8, then 5 + 2 < 8 + 2. Example 2 If 7 < 10, then 7 - 3 < 10 - 3. We can use this rule to solve certain inequalities. Example 3 Solve for x: x + 6 < 10 If we add -6 to each side, we obtain Graphing this solution on the number line, we have We will now use the addition rule to illustrate an important concept concerning multiplication or division of inequalities. Suppose x > a. Now add - x to both sides by the addition rule. Now add -a to both sides. The last statement, - a > -x, can be rewritten as - x < -a. Therefore we can say, "If x > a, then - x < -a. This translates into the following rule: If an inequality is multiplied or divided by a negative number, the results will be unequal in the opposite order. Example 5 Solve for x and graph the solution: -2x>6 To obtain x on the left side we must divide each term by - 2. Notice that since we are dividing by a negative number, we must change the direction of the inequality. Take special note of this fact. Each time you divide or multiply by a negative number, you must change the direction of the inequality symbol. This is the only difference between solving equations and solving inequalities. Once we have removed parentheses and have only individual terms in an expression, the procedure for finding a solution is almost like that in chapter 2. Let us now review the step-by-step method from chapter 2 and note the difference when solving inequalities. First Eliminate fractions by multiplying all terms by the least common denominator of all fractions. (No change when we are multiplying by a positive number.) Second Simplify by combining like terms on each side of the inequality. (No change) Third Add or subtract quantities to obtain the unknown on one side and the numbers on the other. (No change) Fourth Divide each term of the inequality by the coefficient of the unknown. If the coefficient is positive, the inequality will remain the same. If the coefficient is negative, the inequality will be reversed. (This is the important difference between equations and inequalities.) • A literal equation is an equation involving more than one letter. • The symbols are inequality symbols or order relations . • a a is to the left of b on the real number line. • To solve a literal equation for one letter in terms of the others follow the same steps as in chapter 2. • To solve an inequality use the following steps: Step 1 Eliminate fractions by multiplying all terms by the least common denominator of all fractions. Step 2 Simplify by combining like terms on each side of the inequality. Step 3 Add or subtract quantities to obtain the unknown on one side and the numbers on the other. Step 4 Divide each term of the inequality by the coefficient of the unknown. If the coefficient is positive, the inequality will remain the same. If the coefficient is negative, the inequality will be reversed. Step 5 Check your answer.

To solve these problems, you'd have to figure out a linear equation that modelled the situation, and then you'd have to solve that equation to find the answer to the word problem. Content Continues Below MathHelp.com Solving Inequalities So, now that you know how to solve linear inequalities — you guessed it! — they give you word problems. • The velocity of an object fired directly upward is given by V = 80 − 32 t , where the time t is measured in seconds. When will the velocity be between 32 and 64 feet per second (inclusive)? This question is asking when the velocity, V , will be between two given values. So I'll take the expression for the velocity,, and put it between the two values they've given me. They've specified that the interval of velocities is inclusive, which means that the interval endpoints are included. Mathematically, this means that the inequality for this model will be an "or equal to" inequality. Because the solution is a bracket (that is, the solution is within an interval), I'll need to set up a three-part (that is, a compound) inequality. I will set up the compound inequality, and then solve for the range of times t : 32 ≤ 80 − 32 t ≤ 64 32 − 80 ≤ 80 − 80 − 32 t ≤ 64 − 80 −48 ≤ −32 t ≤ −16 −48 / −32 ≥ −32 t / −32 ≥ −16 / −32 1.5 ≥ t ≥ 0.5 Note that, since I had to divide through by a negative, I had to flip the inequality signs. Advertisement Note also that you might (as I do) find the above answer to be more easily understood if it's written the other way around, with "less than" inequalities. And, because this is a (sort of) real world problem, my working should show the fractions, but my answer should probably be converted to decimal form, because it's more natural to say "one and a half seconds" than it is to say "three-halves seconds". So I convert the last line above to the following: 0.5 ≤ t ≤ 1.5 Looking back at the original question, it did not ask for the value of the variable " t ", but asked for the times when the velocity was between certain values. So the actual answer is: The velocity will be between 32 and 64 feet per second between 0.5 seconds after launch and 1.5 seconds after launch. Okay; my answer above was *extremely* verbose and "complete"; you don't likely need to be so extreme. You can probably safely get away with saying something simpler like, "between 0.5 seconds and 1.5 seconds". Just make sure that you do indeed include the approprioate units (in this case, "seconds"). Always remember when doing word problems, that, once you've found the value for the variable, you need to go back and re-read the problem to make sure that you're answering the actual question. The inequality 0.5 ≤ t ≤ 1.5 did not answer the actual question regarding time. I had to interpret the inequality and express the values in terms of the original question. • Solve 5 x + 7 < 3( x + 1) . First I'll multiply through on the right-hand side, and then solve as usual: 5 x + 7 < 3( x + 1) 5 x + 7 < 3 x + 3 2 x + 7 < 3 2 x < −4 x < −2 In solving this inequality, I divided through by a positive 2 to get the final answer; as a result (that is, because I did *not* divide through by a minus), I didn't have to flip the inequality sign. • You want to invest30,000 . Part of this will be invested in a stable 5% -simple-interest account. The remainder will be "invested" in your father's business, and he says that he'll pay you back with 7% interest. Your father knows that you're making these investments in order to pay your child's college tuition with the interest income. What is the least you can "invest" with your father, and still (assuming he really pays you back) get at least $1900 in interest? First, I have to set up equations for this. The interest formula for simple interest is I = Prt , where I is the interest, P is the beginning principal, r is the interest rate expressed as a decimal, and t is the time in years. Since no time-frame is specified for this problem, I'll assume that t = 1 ; that is, I'll assume (hope) that he's promising to pay me at the end of one year. I'll let x be the amount that I'm going to "invest" with my father. Then the rest of my money, being however much is left after whatever I give to him, will be represented by "the total, less what I've already given him", so 30000 − x will be left to invest in the safe account. Then the interest on the business investment, assuming that I get paid back, will be: I = ( x )(0.07)(1) = 0.07 x The interest on the safe investment will be: (30 000 − x )(0.05)(1) = 1500 − 0.05 x The total interest is the sum of what is earned on each of the two separate investments, so my expression for the total interest is: 0.07 x + (1500 − 0.05 x ) = 0.02 x + 1500 I need to get at least$1900 ; that is, the sum of the two investments' interest must be greater than, or at least equal to, $1,900 . This allows me to create my inequality: 0.02 x + 1500 ≥ 1900 0.02 x ≥ 400 x ≥ 20 000 That is, I will need to "invest" at least$20,000 with my father in order to get $1,900 in interest income. Since I want to give him as little money as possible, I will give him the minimum amount: I will invest$20,000 at 7% .

• An alloy needs to contain between 46% copper and 50% copper. Find the least and greatest amounts of a 60% copper alloy that should be mixed with a 40% copper alloy in order to end up with thirty pounds of an alloy containing an allowable percentage of copper.

This is similar to a mixture word problem , except that this will involve inequality symbols rather than "equals" signs. I'll set it up the same way, though, starting with picking a variable for the unknown that I'm seeking. I will use x to stand for the pounds of 60% copper alloy that I need to use. Then 30 −  x will be the number of pounds, out of total of thirty pounds needed, that will come from the 40% alloy.

Of course, I'll remember to convert the percentages to decimal form for doing the algebra.

pounds % copper pounds copper
60%
alloy
0.6 0.6
40%
alloy
30 − 0.4 0.4(30 − ) =
12 − 0.4
mixture 30 between 0.46
and 0.5
between 13.8
and 15

How did I get those values in the bottom right-hand box? I multiplied the total number of pounds in the mixture ( 30 ) by the minimum and maximum percentages ( 46% and 50% , respectively). That is, I multiplied across the bottom row, just as I did in the " 60% alloy" row and the " 40% alloy" row, to get the right-hand column's value.

The total amount of copper in the mixture will be the sum of the copper contributed by each of the two alloys that are being put into the mixture. So I'll add the expressions for the amount of copper from each of the alloys, and place the expression for the total amount of copper in the mixture as being between the minimum and the maximum allowable amounts of copper:

13.8 ≤ 0.6 x + (12 − 0.4 x ) ≤ 15

13.8 ≤ 0.2 x + 12 ≤ 15

1.8 ≤ 0.2 x ≤ 3

9 ≤ x ≤ 15

Checking back to my set-up, I see that I chose my variable to stand for the number of pounds that I need to use of the 60% copper alloy. And they'd only asked me for this amount, so I can ignore the other alloy in my answer.

I will need to use between 9 and 15 pounds of the 60% alloy.

Per yoozh, I'm verbose in my answer. You can answer simply as " between 9 and 15 pounds ".

• Solve 3( x − 2) + 4 ≥ 2(2 x − 3)

First I'll multiply through and simplify; then I'll solve:

3( x − 2) + 4 ≥ 2(2 x − 3)

3 x − 6 + 4 ≥ 4 x − 6

3 x − 2 ≥ 4 x − 6

−2 ≥ x − 6            (*)

Why did I move the 3 x over to the right-hand side (to get to the line marked with a star), instead of moving the 4 x to the left-hand side? Because by moving the smaller term, I was able to avoid having a negative coefficient on the variable, and therefore I was able to avoid having to remember to flip the inequality when I divided through by that negative coefficient. I find it simpler to work this way; I make fewer errors. But it's just a matter of taste; you do what works for you.

Why did I switch the inequality in the last line and put the variable on the left? Because I'm more comfortable with inequalities when the answers are formatted this way. Again, it's only a matter of taste. The form of the answer in the previous line, 4 ≥ x , is perfectly acceptable.

As long as you remember to flip the inequality sign when you multiply or divide through by a negative, you shouldn't have any trouble with solving linear inequalities.

Solving Inequality Word Questions

(You might like to read Introduction to Inequalities and Solving Inequalities first.)

In Algebra we have "inequality" questions like:

Sam and Alex play in the same soccer team. Last Saturday Alex scored 3 more goals than Sam, but together they scored less than 9 goals. What are the possible number of goals Alex scored?

How do we solve them?

The trick is to break the solution into two parts:

Turn the English into Algebra.

Then use Algebra to solve.

Turning English into Algebra

To turn the English into Algebra it helps to:

• Read the whole thing first
• Do a sketch if needed
• Assign letters for the values
• Find or work out formulas

We should also write down what is actually being asked for , so we know where we are going and when we have arrived!

The best way to learn this is by example, so let's try our first example:

Assign Letters:

• the number of goals Alex scored: A
• the number of goals Sam scored: S

We know that Alex scored 3 more goals than Sam did, so: A = S + 3

And we know that together they scored less than 9 goals: S + A < 9

We are being asked for how many goals Alex might have scored: A

Sam scored less than 3 goals, which means that Sam could have scored 0, 1 or 2 goals.

Alex scored 3 more goals than Sam did, so Alex could have scored 3, 4, or 5 goals .

• When S = 0, then A = 3 and S + A = 3, and 3 < 9 is correct
• When S = 1, then A = 4 and S + A = 5, and 5 < 9 is correct
• When S = 2, then A = 5 and S + A = 7, and 7 < 9 is correct
• (But when S = 3, then A = 6 and S + A = 9, and 9 < 9 is incorrect)

Example: Of 8 pups, there are more girls than boys. How many girl pups could there be?

• the number of girls: g
• the number of boys: b

We know that there are 8 pups, so: g + b = 8, which can be rearranged to

We also know there are more girls than boys, so:

We are being asked for the number of girl pups: g

So there could be 5, 6, 7 or 8 girl pups.

Could there be 8 girl pups? Then there would be no boys at all, and the question isn't clear on that point (sometimes questions are like that).

• When g = 8, then b = 0 and g > b is correct (but is b = 0 allowed?)
• When g = 7, then b = 1 and g > b is correct
• When g = 6, then b = 2 and g > b is correct
• When g = 5, then b = 3 and g > b is correct
• (But if g = 4, then b = 4 and g > b is incorrect)

A speedy example:

Example: Joe enters a race where he has to cycle and run. He cycles a distance of 25 km, and then runs for 20 km. His average running speed is half of his average cycling speed. Joe completes the race in less than 2½ hours, what can we say about his average speeds?

• Average running speed: s
• So average cycling speed: 2s
• Speed = Distance Time
• Which can be rearranged to: Time = Distance Speed

We are being asked for his average speeds: s and 2s

The race is divided into two parts:

• Distance = 25 km
• Average speed = 2s km/h
• So Time = Distance Average Speed = 25 2s hours
• Distance = 20 km
• Average speed = s km/h
• So Time = Distance Average Speed = 20 s hours

Joe completes the race in less than 2½ hours

• The total time < 2½
• 25 2s + 20 s < 2½

So his average speed running is greater than 13 km/h and his average speed cycling is greater than 26 km/h

In this example we get to use two inequalities at once:

Example: The velocity v m/s of a ball thrown directly up in the air is given by v = 20 − 10t , where t is the time in seconds. At what times will the velocity be between 10 m/s and 15 m/s?

• velocity in m/s: v
• the time in seconds: t
• v = 20 − 10t

We are being asked for the time t when v is between 5 and 15 m/s:

So the velocity is between 10 m/s and 15 m/s between 0.5 and 1 second after.

And a reasonably hard example to finish with:

Example: A rectangular room fits at least 7 tables that each have 1 square meter of surface area. The perimeter of the room is 16 m. What could the width and length of the room be?

Make a sketch: we don't know the size of the tables, only their area, they may fit perfectly or not!

• the length of the room: L
• the width of the room: W

The formula for the perimeter is 2(W + L) , and we know it is 16 m

• 2(W + L) = 16
• L = 8 − W

We also know the area of a rectangle is the width times the length: Area = W × L

And the area must be greater than or equal to 7:

• W × L ≥ 7

We are being asked for the possible values of W and L

Let's solve:

So the width must be between 1 m and 7 m (inclusive) and the length is 8−width .

• Say W = 1, then L = 8−1 = 7, and A = 1 x 7 = 7 m 2 (fits exactly 7 tables)
• Say W = 0.9 (less than 1), then L = 7.1, and A = 0.9 x 7.1 = 6.39 m 2 (7 won't fit)
• Say W = 1.1 (just above 1), then L = 6.9, and A = 1.1 x 6.9 = 7.59 m 2 (7 fit easily)
• Likewise for W around 7 m

Solving Inequalities Practice Questions

Inequalities are fundamental in mathematics and are used extensively in various branches such as algebra, calculus, optimization and more. They describe relationships between variables and constants and are essential in solving problems involving ranges of values, constraints and conditions.

Solving inequalities often involves manipulating expressions algebraically, graphing on number lines or coordinate planes and understanding intervals of possible solutions. The solutions to inequalities are sets of values or intervals that satisfy the given inequality condition.

What is Inequality?

In mathematics, an inequality is a statement that compares two expressions or values, indicating their relative sizes. Unlike equations, which assert equality between two expressions, inequalities express a relationship where one expression is greater than, less than, greater than or equal to, or less than or equal to another expression.

Example : 2x + 5 < 1 = This inequality states that 2 times some unknown number x, plus 5, is strictly less than 1.

Unlike equations where both sides aim to be equal, inequalities establish a relationship between expressions using symbols like:

• < (less than)
• > (greater than)
• ≤ (less than or equal to)
• ≥ (greater than or equal to)

Formally, an inequality is typically written in one of the following forms:

Question 1: Linear Inequality : Solve the inequality: 3x+5>11

3x+5>11 Subtract 5 from both sides: 3x>6 Divide both sides by 3: x>2 So, the solution is x>2

Question 2: Compound Inequality : Solve the compound inequality: -2<2x+3≤7

Break it into two parts: -2<2x+3 and 2x+3 ≤ 7 -2<2x+3 Subtract 3 from all parts: -5<2x Divide by 2: -5/2 <x 2x+3 ≤ 7 Subtract 3 from all parts: 2x ≤ 4 Divide by 2: x ≤2 So, the solution to -2 < 2x+3 ≤ 7 is -5/2 <x ≤2

Question 3: Absolute Value Inequality : Solve the inequality: ∣x-3∣≥4

Consider two cases: (i) x-3≥4 Add 3 to both sides: x ≥ 7 (ii) x-3≤-4 Add 3 to both sides: x ≤ -1 So, the solution to ∣x-3∣ ≥ 4 is x≤-1 or x ≥7

Question 4: Quadratic Inequality : Solve the inequality: x 2 -4x<3

Rewrite it as: x 2 -4x-3<0 Factorize the quadratic expression: (x-3)(x+1)<0 Analyze the sign changes: The inequality holds when -1<x<3 So, the solution to x 2 – 4x <3 is -1 < x < 3

Question 5: Rational Inequality: Solve the inequality: (x-2) / (x+1) > 0

Consider where the numerator and denominator change signs:

• Numerator (x-2) changes sign at x = 2
• Denominator (x+1) changes sign at x = -1

Test intervals:

• For x<-1 or -1 <x<2, (x-2) / (x+1) <0
• For x > 2 or -1 < x < 2, (x-2) / (x+1) >0

So, the solution for (x-2)/(x+1) > 0 is x <-1 or x> 2

Question 6: Exponential Inequality : Solve the inequality: 2 x – 1 < 8

Rewrite 8 as a power of 2: 2 x – 1 < 2 3 Since the bases are the same, equate the exponents: x-1 < 3 Add 1 to both sides: x < 4 So, the solution to 2 x – 1 < 8 is x < 4

Question 7: Logarithmic Inequality : Solve the inequality: log⁡(x+1)>log⁡(4)

Since the logarithm function is increasing: log⁡(x+1) > log⁡(4) x + 1 > 4 Subtract 1 from both sides: x > 3 So, the solution to log⁡(x+1) > log⁡(4) is x > 3

Question 8: Polynomial Inequality: Solve the polynomial inequality: x 3 – 2x 2 – 3x > 0

Factorize the polynomial (if possible) or analyze intervals: x 3 – 2x 2 – 3x > 0 x(x-3)(x+1) > 0 Determine sign changes and intervals: Inequality holds when x < -1 or x > 3 So , the solution for x 3 – 2x 2 – 3x > 0 is x <-1 or x > 3

Question 9: Solve the compound inequality: 1 < 2x + 3 < 7

Split this into two separate inequalities: 1 < 2x+3 and 2x+3 < 7 Solve the first inequality: 1 < 2x + 3 Subtract 3 from both sides: -2 < 2x Divide both sides by 2: -1 < x Solve the second inequality 2x+3 < 7 Subtract 3 from both sides: 2x < 4 Divide both sides by 2: x < 2 So, the solution set for the compound inequality 1 < 2x+3 < 7 is -1 < x < 2

Question 10: Solve an inequality with absolute values: Solve ∣3x+2∣<7

Consider two cases for the absolute value inequality: Case 1: 3x+2 < 7 3x < 5 x < 5/3 Case 2: -(3x+2) < 7 -3x-2 < 7 Subtract 2 from both sides: -3x < 9 Divide both sides by -3 (flip the inequality sign): x > -3 Combining the solutions from both cases, we get -3 < x < 5/3

Solving Inequalities – FAQs

What is concept of inequality in maths.

Inequalities are the mathematical expressions in which both sides are not equal. In inequality, unlike in equations, we compare two values. The equal sign in between is replaced by less than (or less than or equal to), greater than (or greater than or equal to), or not equal to sign.

What is the Most Important thing to Remember when Solving Inequalities?

If you multiply or divide both sides of an inequality by the same positive number, the inequality remains true. But if you multiply or divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number, the inequality is no longer true. In fact, the inequality becomes reversed.

What is Difference Between an Equation and an Inequality?

Equations and inequalities are both mathematical sentences formed by relating two expressions to each other. In an equation, the two expressions are deemed equal which is shown by the symbol =. Where as in an inequality, the two expressions are not necessarily equal which is indicated by the symbols: >, <, ≤ or ≥.

What is Theorem of Inequality?

According to triangle inequality theorem, for any given triangle, the sum of two sides of a triangle is always greater than the third side. A polygon bounded by three line-segments is known as the Triangle.

Suppose that the rabbit population on mr. jenkins' farm follows the formula

Jenkins' farm tracks the procedure p(t)=3000tt+1. where t≥0 is the period (in months) since the start of the year.

As time (t) increases, the rabbit population (p(t)) will also increase , but it will approach a maximum value without ever actually reaching it, resulting in continuous growth that slows down over time.

Given formula: p(t) = 300t / (t + 1)

As time (t) increases , the denominator (t + 1) also increases .

The rabbit population (p(t)) is calculated by dividing 300t by (t + 1).

Now, let's examine the behaviour as t becomes larger:

When t is very small (close to 0), the population p(t) is also small, since the denominator (t + 1) is close to 1.

As t increases, the denominator (t + 1) grows, causing the value of p(t) to increase.

However, the rate of increase slows down as t gets larger.

This is because the denominator grows faster than the numerator (300t).

Eventually , as t becomes very large, the value of p(t) approaches but never quite reaches a maximum value.

This behaviour is characteristic of a rational function where the numerator's growth is outpaced by the denominator's growth, resulting in an asymptotic approach to a certain value.

A large industrial machine is able to monitor brainly

yes, they just monitor by flagged key words.

I run a book club with $n$ people, not including myself. every day, for $365$ days, i invite three members in the club to review a book. what is the smallest positive integer $n$ so that i can avoid ever having the exact same group of three members over all $365$ days?

The smallest positive integer n so that you can avoid ever having the exact same group of three members over all 365 days is; 11

if we have n people and we want to do groups of 5, the total number of different combinations is:

ⁿC₅ = n!/((n - 5)!5!)

By using the Brute force method, we have;

Now, If n = 9,

C = 9!/((9 - 5)!5!)

We want to find the smallest n such that c > 365. Thus, C = 126 is too small.

Let's try n = 11;

C = 11!/(6! * 5!) =  462

This is greater than 365 and so we need at least 11 members in the club.

Among all pairs of numbers whose difference is 14 find a pair whose product is as small as possible

The pair two numbers whose difference is 14 and the product is as small as possible (i.e. -49) are (-7,7)

In mathematical concepts, word problems involve a crucial understanding of the problem and knowing which mathematical method and arithmetic operations are best suited to solving the problem.

If we assume that the smaller number should be = a and the larger number = a + 14.

Thus, their product (X) can be expressed as:

The smallest possible value implies the minimum value , i.e.

$$\mathbf{\dfrac{dX}{da} = 2a + 14}$$

2a + 14 = 0

Therefore, we can conclude that the pair of two numbers whose difference is 14 and the product is as small as possible (i.e. -49) is (-7,7).

Your chance of acceptance, your chancing factors, extracurriculars, breaking down the sat: what type of math is on it.

As I'm studying for the SAT, I realize that there are different types of math problems in my review. Can anyone let me know what type of math is typically tested on the SAT?

Of course! The math on the SAT covers several areas, and is divided into two sections. Here's a basic breakdown:

1. Heart of Algebra: This includes linear equations and systems. This section is all about analyzing and solving problems involving linear relationships. This means you'll be dealing with mathematical expressions, linear equations, linear inequalities, and linear functions.

2. Problem Solving and Data Analysis: This is about being quantitatively literate. This includes ratios, rates, proportional relationships, and scaling. You will also deal with statistics where you have to analyze, represent, and interpret data. It's also worth mentioning that you'll encounter questions based on basic probability.

3. Passport to Advanced Math: This section delves into the more complex equations and functions. Essentially, you'll be dealing with quadratic and exponential functions. Basically, these are expressions and equations which involve the manipulation of complex equations.

4. Additional Topics in Math: This encompasses several other areas like geometry and trigonometry. You'll see questions on volumes of solids, triangle properties, circle properties, radians, and the Pythagorean theorem.

Important to note: as of 2024, when the SAT became completely digital, you can use your calculator on both of the math modules. This should come in handy especially when dealing with complex equations or larger numbers.

Keep working hard on your practicing. Your diligence will pay off in the end! Good luck.

Anthropic CEO says we need to think bigger than a universal basic income if we want to solve the AI inequality problem

• Some fear that rapid advances in AI may concentrate power and wealth among a small elite.
• Anthropic CEO Dario Amodei says a universal basic income may not sufficiently address such a shift.
• He says there needs to be a broader economic reorganization.

The rapid advances in AI could consolidate power and wealth in the hands of a small few , which is why many in the tech industry have called for a universal basic income.

But some AI leaders say even UBI, a recurring cash payment to those in a given population regardless of their wealth or employment status, wouldn't be enough.

"I certainly think that's better than nothing," Anthropic CEO Dario Amodei told Time. "But I would much prefer a world in which everyone can contribute. It would be kind of dystopian if there are these few people that can make trillions of dollars, and then the government hands it all out to the unwashed masses."

Amodei, a former OpenAI employee, launched Anthropic in 2021 with his sister, Daniela, and five other OpenAI colleagues. They believed AI would have a dramatic impact on the world and wanted to build a company that would ensure it was aligned with human values. Amodei described the company to Time as one focused on "public benefit."

Many in the tech industry have expressed support for universal basic income to mitigate the economic impact of AI. The idea is that it would act as a safety net for people whose jobs have been threatened by the technology.

But Amodei suggests that AI will alter society in such a fundamental way that we need to design a more comprehensive solution. "I think in the long run, we're really going to need to think about how do we organize the economy and how humans think about their lives?" He doesn't have the answer, he said, in part because he believes it needs to be a "conversation among humanity."

Amodei isn't the only one thinking beyond universal basic income. OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, while a vocal proponent of it, has also proposed the idea of a " universal basic compute ." The idea is that as large language models advance, owning a slice of one will be more valuable than money.
