Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn about interval notation, which is a different way of writing and graphing inequalities. By using brackets or parentheses, you can show the smallest number and largest number in an inequality. The use of notation helps to simplify writing solutions to inequalities, especially when dealing with large numbers. The lesson also covers how to graph the inequalities using both standard and interval notations.

Lesson Description:

Learn how to solve inequalities and write the solution in interval notation.
