How is an inequality different from an equation? Give a realworld scenario in which you would write an inequality rather than an equation.
I really need to know how an inequality is different from an equation. I know the signs used are different, but what else? I am very confused! Please help!

equation says two things are equal
x+y = 3
inequality says they are not, and in what way.
x+y <= 3
x/2 > y+7
The big clue is equality and inequality

If there is minus the inequality sign will change while equation dose not change e.g a<3 that is a>3 while a=3 also a=3
