 Question 329249: how do you know if a value is a solution for an inequality? How is this different from determining if a value is a solution to an equation?Answer by stanbon(57246)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! how do you know if a value is a solution for an inequality? How is this different from determining if a value is a solution to an equation? ---- The process is the same for the equation and for the inequality. Substitute the "solution" into the inequality or into the equation. If you get a true statement the "solution" is really a solution. ==================================== Cheers, Stan H. ========================
