inequality

2. RyanL.

Plug in an order pair and see if it makes sense.

3. EmmaH

how does that work can you give ke an example please?

4. RyanL.

Well it's kinda hard. Can you post the inequality that you are having problems with

5. EmmaH

@RyanL. ??

Will the inequality says that x<3.8 This means that X HAS TO BE lower than 3.8 in order to be true!

9. RyanL.

x<3.8 means x is less than 3.8

10. EmmaH

yes but what do i do to9 check them?

11. RyanL.

What do you mean by check? Do you mean graph it?

12. EmmaH

well i have to make a weird equation to check it like this {x}x≤18}

13. EmmaH

that example is the not the checking equation for the above problem

@RyanL.

15. EmmaH

sooo confused:( i have to get this done..

Well , I am not 100 % sure, but when you check an inequality, it makes sense to substitute in a value for x. In this case, you could do 3.8. It would look like this: \[-10(3.8)\ge -38\] This is true. You might want to check this for further explanation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Aw6NO60NxU
