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.

The only difference in solving an inequality and an equation is when you multiply or divide both sides by negative numbers. Then it reverses the direction of the carat.

> = more than
< = less than

Your last sentence does not make sense to me. Are there typos?
