Week 3 DQ 1

1We all agree that 2 is smaller than 5 or 2 < 5. Now multiply both sides by any negative number. For instance, multiply 2 by -4 and 5 by -4. We get -8 and -20. We must use a bigger sign (>) because -8 is bigger than -20 or -8 > -20. It would not make sense anymore to write -8 < - 20 because it is not. Now why -8 > -20? There are many explanations. One explanation is because -8 is closer to zero on the number line than -20.

Remember, in an *inequality,* one side is BIGGER than the other side, right?

some number (let's say x) > some other number (let's say y)

so if it's an inequality it's an equation that looks like either

y > x or x > y

or less than. an equation is different. No change. -9 is smaller. right? -9 < -3 but--! 9>3 See what happened? When we made both sides positive. It is like a perfectly balanced scale. because when you multiply or divide by a negative number you will change the signs of the numbers (either from positive to negative or from negative to positive) on both sides of the inequality. right? So. . the smaller the NUMBER. On the other hand. you know that.If you remember what you know about positive and negative numbers. Both sides are still equal. This will make the inequality sign change. the inequality sign changed! This will always happen when you multiply or divide both sides by a negative number. the bigger the NUMERAL. Everything on both sides of the equation is the SAME. it's STILL balanced. So whenever you do the same thing to both sides of an equation (think of adding 5 pounds to each side of a balance). -3. even when you multiply or divide by a negative number. for example.

provide a value that is not a solution. If the value he or she provides is a solution. . the inequality becomes true. when you plug that number into the variable. If the value is not a solution. provide a value that is a solution.Discussion Question 2 ? Due Date: Day 4 [Main forum] ? Post your response to the following: How do you know if a value is a solution for an inequality? How is this different from determining if a value is a solution to an equation? If you replace the equal sign of an equation with an inequality sign. ? Consider responding to a classmate by determining whether or not the solution provided is a solution to the inequality. is there ever a time when the same value will be a solution to both the equation and the inequality? Write an inequality and provide a value that may or may not be a solution to the inequality. DQ 2 A number is called a "solution" for an inequality if.

you get "6 + 5 < 10". (6 plus 5 is 11. in which case. 4 is a solution to the inequality "x + 5 < 10". (4 plus 5 is 9. which is false.. and that value is the UNIQUE solution to the equation formed from the inequality. 6 is not a solution to the inequality "x + 5 < 10". it will not be a solution of the equation formed from the inequality unless the inequality has a greater than or equal to sign or a less than or equal to sign. Therefore x = 2 is the solution of the equation. while equations have unique solutions. because when you plug in 4 for x. which isn't less than 10. For example: x+3>4 x>1 . which is less than 10. which is true.) Well. but 2 is not a solution of the inequality. you get "4 + 5 < 10". an inequality shows two statements that are true if and only if one statement differs from the other by being greater than. If the solution is a solution of the inequality. Inequalities have multiple solutions. x = the same value that x >=.) On the other hand. then we get x to be: x=2 Now we re-substitute the > x>2 Meaning that x + 1 > 3 is true only for all x > 2. or equal to the other.For example. For example: x+1>3 If you change the > to =. less than. because when you plug in 6 for x.

if we chose x = 1 1 + 3 > 4 FALSE 1+3=4 4 = 4 TRUE . since it is the closest whole number above 1: 2+3>4 5 > 4 TRUE 2+3=4 5 = 4 FALSE And if you look here.Let's just choose 2 for the value.
