How can you tell if a value is a solution to an inequality.

Algebra Math 116 
MathMate,
Substitute the solution variable in the inequation and see if the inequality is satisfied.
For example, if we say x=5 satisfies
x²+2x10>25
substitute x=5 to get
5²+2*510=25
Therefore x=5 is NOT a solution to the given inequation, since the inequality > is violated.
