How is an inequality different from an equation? Give a real-world scenario in which you would write an inequality rather than an equation.

I don't know how to solve this or what the answer is. Please help!

    An equation show two equal entities. An inequality shows that one is larger than the other.

    An example of an inequality:

    Denise has $50 and wants to buy two new shirts. She needs to know how the average price she'll need to pay so that she doesn't exceed her $50.

    2n < 50
