Comparing and Contrasting Equalities and Inequalities

1) The main similarities between solving these two problems are the way you solve them. You treat the two problems the same when solving; you do the same things on both sides and they end up looking exactly the same except for the equals sign or inequality. There aren’t any differences in the way you solve these equations, the difference is what they equal. For the first equation, x equals nine whereas in the second equation, x is any number less than or equal to nine. 2) The first problem is saying that six plus the absolute value of three x minus two is equal … Continue reading Comparing and Contrasting Equalities and Inequalities
