Referenced from lesson Simple Inequalities

Each inequality expression in the first column contains a number.

Decide whether or not that number is a solution to the expression and place it in the appropriate column.

Then identify 4 solution and 4 non-solution values for `x`.

• Solutions will make the expression `true`.

• Non-Solutions will make the expression `false`.

Challenge yourself to use negatives, positives, fractions, decimals, etc. for your `x` values.

Expression 4 solutions that evaluate to `true` 4 non-solutions that evaluate to `false`

(> x 2)

(<= x -2)

(< x 3.5)

(>= x -1)

(> x -4)

(<> x 2)

1 For which inequalities was the number from the expression part of the solution?

2 For which inequalities was the number from the expression not part of the solution?

3 For which inequalities were the solutions on the left end of the number line?

4 For which inequalities were the solutions on the right end of the number line?
