In this discussion, you will be demonstrating your understanding of compound inequalities and the effect that dividing by a negative has on an inequality view the example attached.
Your “and” compound inequality is:
Your “or” compound inequality is:
|–1 < –2x + 4 ≤ 5||x < 0 or 3x + 1 ≥ 7|
Solve the compound inequalities as demonstrated in the example attached.
- 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.
- 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.
