In this discussion, you will be demonstrating your understanding of
compound inequalities and the effect that dividing by a negative has on
an inequality. Please find the pair of compound inequalities assigned to you in the table below
Problem #1 Your “and” compound inequality is: -16 ≤ 2 + 9x ≤ 11
Problem # 2 Your “or” compound inequality is 12 – x > 15 or 4x – 13 > 7
- Solve the compound inequalities as demonstrated in Elementary and Intermediate Algebra
and the Instructor Guidance in the left navigation toolbar. Be careful
of how a negative x-term is handled in the solving process. Show all
math work arriving at the solutions.
- Show the solution sets written algebraically and as a union or
intersection of intervals. Describe in words what the solution sets
mean, and then display a simple line graph for each solution set. This
is demonstrated in the Instructor Guidance in the left navigation
- Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use bold font to emphasize the words in your writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing your math work.):
