8th grade math for Ms. Sue - last question please

posted by .

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 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
