Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, the instructor teaches how to solve and graph linear inequalities on a number line. The lesson covers different approaches for solving these inequalities, including multiplying both sides by the reciprocal or by the least common denominator. It is important to remember that if you multiply or divide by a negative number, you must switch the inequality symbol. The instructor also emphasizes the importance of checking the solutions to ensure they are valid.

    This lesson takes what we learned from the properties of inequalities in the previous lesson and uses them to solve and graph inequalities on a number line and then check the solution. Several example problems are done in this lesson and explained step by step. Flipping the inequality sign is explained as well.
