Intro and SummaryIntroduction to InequalitiesInequalitytells you about therelative sizeof two values. Mathematics is not always about "equals"! Sometimes you only know that something is bigger or smallerThis chapter is about inequalities -- statements that show the relationship between two (or more) expressions with one of the following five signs:<,,>,,. These are similar in form to the equations learned in chapter one, with one key difference: here, we are dealing withunequal quantities instead of equal quantities.The first section explains the meaning of an inequality. It introduces the concept of inequalities with variables, and shows how to find a solution set for an inequality, given a replacement set.The second section introduces the formal properties of inequalities. These properties are similar to the properties of equality properties of operations and identities, with a few key differences, particularly in the Multiplication and Division Properties of Inequalities. It is necessary to know all the properties in this section in order to solve inequalities. In addition, these properties teach us more about the real numbers and how they interact with each other.The third section explains how to solve inequalities using inverse operations. This section presents easy-to-follow steps for solving inequalities.Certain inequalities can be confusing to solve merely by using inverse operations. Thus, the next section presents
