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.

Please help me!

• Algebra -

A particular value of x either is or IS NOT a solution to an inequality. It can't be both.
For x>2, 3 is a solution and 1 is not, for example. x=2 is also not a solution; it is a solution to the equation x=2 only.

I don't get the point of this question.
