Describe in your own words how to solve a linear equation using the equality properties. Demonstrate the process with an example. Next, replace the equal sign in your example with an inequality by using the less than or greater than sign. Then solve the inequality.
The process in solving an inequality is the same as for an equation, except for multiplying/dividing by negative quantities, when the carat (< or >) reverses.
