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

Substitute the solution variable in the inequation and see if the inequality is satisfied.

For example, if we say x=5 satisfies

x²+2x-10>25

substitute x=5 to get

5²+2*5-10=25

Therefore x=5 is NOT a solution to the given inequation, since the inequality > is violated.
