# Solving Inequalities With One Variable

##### Rating:

Author: Shirley Beil
##### Description:

I use a graphical approach to solving inequalities in this tutorial and assume students have already studied the graphical properties of linear, quadratic, polynomial, radical, and rational functions.

I delay this section (Sec 1.8) in College Algebra 6e (Stewart - Brooks/Cole) until after completing Chapter 3.

## Solving Linear Inequalities

At the end of the first example, I used a closed circle for 7/2. It should have been an open circle as previously discussed.

* In the 2nd and 4th examples here the interval notation was correct but I shaded the interval between the x-intercepts on the number line instead of to the left of the leftmost and to the right of the rightmost! * In the 4th example, I said that the function was not factorable. I should have said "was not easily factorable!.
