Name: Solve Inequalities

Lesson 20

Prerequisite: Solve Equations

Study the example problem showing how to solve an equation. Then solve problems 1–7.

1 What does b represent in the bar model?

2 What does each part of the bar model represent?

3 Explain how the model shows that 7b 5 91

4 What operation will you use to solve the equation 7b 5 91? Solve the equation to find the number of bulbs, and justify each step you take to solve the equation

Show your work.

Solution:

Example

Taryn planted 91 tulip bulbs in 7 rows She planted the same number of bulbs in each row How many bulbs did she plant in each row?

Create a bar model to represent the 7 rows and the total number of bulbs that Taryn planted

91

Write and Solve an Inequality

Study the example problem showing how to write and solve an inequality for a real-world problem. Then solve problems 1–9.

1 Why is the graph in the example shaded to the left?

2 Is 2$10 a solution? Substitute 210 into the inequality in the example to check

3 Name an amount that is NOT a solution to the inequality Explain how you know

4 Suppose the bank sent Mr Gomez a notice whenever the amount in his account dropped to $15 or less How would the graph in the example change?

Example

Mr Gomez gets a notice from the bank when the amount in his checking account drops below $20 For what amounts will Mr Gomez receive a notice from the bank?

Use words and symbols to represent the situation Let x represent the amount in Mr Gomez’s account When x is less than $20, the bank will send a notice

x , 20

Graph the inequality to show all of the solutions Use an open circle shows that 20 is NOT a solution

Vocabulary inequality a statement that contains the symbol

,, ., #, or $ For any

inequality, there are

many possible solutions

These are inequalities

More Inequalities

Study the example problem showing how to write and solve an inequality. Then solve problems 1–9.

1 Leigh is 40 inches tall Can she ride on the roller coaster?

2 Brennon is 38 inches tall Can he ride on the roller coaster? Use the graph to explain your answer

3 Joy wrote the inequality 40 # x to represent the situation Is her inequality correct?

4 Suppose this graph represents a problem about the height of people riding the roller coaster How would the situation have changed?

Example

You need to be at least 40 inches tall to ride on the roller coaster at the amusement park What are some possible heights for riders? Write an inequality to represent the heights, and graph the solution on a number line

Use symbols to represent the situation Let x be the possible heights in inches for riders
