Linear Inequalities - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

If we want to solve for or describe a region in a coordinate plane, we can use linear inequalities. Linear inequalities give us a set of solutions as opposed to just one solution. You can solve linear inequalities using similar methods as in solving multi-step equations, except that there are extra rules when using multiplication and division. We graph linear inequalities by shading regions of number lines or coordinate planes.
