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? If you replace the equal sign of an equation and put an inequality sign in its place, is there ever a time when the same value will be a solution to both the equation and inequality? Write an inequality and provide a value that may or may not be a solution to the inequality.
I am still getting confused with this.

I can;t really explain it but here is an example x+5<10. look at the x we know the value of it must be a number that when added to 5 will not make it be more than 10, because the inequality sign represents(less than). so first you must see what the inequality symbol represesnts. x+5<10 we know the value oc x has to be less than 5.
