**Steve**, Thursday, August 23, 2012 at 4:27amone is an inequality, the other is not. :-)

An equation will have 0,1, or 2 roots.

for example,

(x-3)(x+4) = 0

is true when x=3 or x = -4.

(x-3)(x+4) < 0

is the**interval**from -4 to 3, where y < 0.

Just as the equation, the inequality may have an interval, or a point for a solution, or no solution at all.

x^2 <= 0 has only x=0 for a solution.

x^2 > 0 will have two intervals for a solution: (-oo,0) U (0,oo)

x^2 < 0 has no real solutions at all
