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?, write an inequality and provide a value that may or may not be a solution to the inequality

<<How do you know if a value is a solution for an inequality?>>
Try it and see if it works
<<How is this different from determining if a value is a solution to an equation?>>
Special rules apply to solving inequalities, like changing the ridetion of > and < if you multiply or divide both sides by a negative number. You can always solve the corresponding equality to see where the the limit of an inequality is.
<<write an inequality and provide a value that may or may not be a solution to the inequality >>
x > 1
x = 2 is a solution
x = 0 is not 
y < 6
y = 6
