From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!

Solving Inequalities Exercises

Example 1

Solve the inequality z + 5 ≥ 3 and represent its solutions using a number line.

Example 2

Solve the inequality 4(x – 1) < 3(x + 1) and represent its solutions using a number line.

Example 3

Solve the inequality 2x + 3 ≤ x and represent its solutions using a number line.

Example 4

Solve the inequality 5(x + 2) – 3x ≤ 4 + 2x + 3(x – 1). Write the solution as an inequality, and show the solution on a number line.

Example 5

Solve the inequality -12x < 144. Write the solution as an inequality, and show the solution on a number line.

Example 6

Solve the inequality 5[x + 3(1 – x) + 2] ≥ 7. Write the solution as an inequality, and show the solution on a number line.

Example 7

Solve the inequality 7y + 2 ≤ 65. Write the solution as an inequality, and show the solution on a number line.

Example 8

Solve the inequality z + z[3 – 2(1 + z)] < 5[1 + 2(z – 3)] – 2z2. Write the solution as an inequality, and show the solution on a number line.
