  • Similar to equations, first isolate the variable by using the inverse operation.
  • For dividing or multiplying both sides by negative numbers, flip the direction of the inequality sign.

One–Step Inequalities – Example 1:

Solve and graph the inequality. \(x \ + \ 2 \ ≥ \ 3\)

Solution:

Subtract \(2\) from both sides. \(x \ + \ 2 \ ≥ \ 3→x \ + \ 2 \ – \ 2 \ ≥ \ 3 \ – \ 2\), then: \(x \ ≥ \ 1\)

One–Step Inequalities – Example 2:

Solve and graph the inequality. \(x \ – \ 1 \ \leq \ 2\)

Solution:

Add \(1\) to both sides. \(x \ − \ 1 \ ≤ \ 2→x \ − \ 1 \ + \ 1 \ ≤ \ 2 \ + \ 1\), then: \(x \ ≤ \ 3\)

One–Step Inequalities – Example 3:

Solve and graph the inequality. \(x+5≥6\).

Solution:

Subtract \(5\) from both sides. \(x+5≥6→x+5-5≥6-5\), then: \(x≥1\)

One–Step Inequalities – Example 4:

Solve this inequality. \(x-6≤-3\)

Solution:

Add \(6\) to both sides. \(x-6≤-3→x-6+6≤-3+6\), then: \(x≤3\)
