Inequalities are useful for finding a range of solutions. Solving and graphing inequalities is a key to finding and showing that range. This video clip explains how to solve inequalities using a lot of the same methods as those in solving multi-step equations when dealing with additive inverses, although some things are different when solving inequalities using multiplication. We graph inequalities using number lines. (1:32)
