Hi. Is this okay?

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

Equations and Inequalities are similar but different things. And equation is a mathematical sentences with an equal sign. An inequality is a mathematical sentences in which contaibs with <, >, ≤ ≥≠. A real life example would be:

Madeline has $45. She wants to get a gift for Lauren, Emma, and Jenna. She needs to know that she has enough money.

3x≤$45
3x/3=$45/3
x=$15

This means that Madeline can spend a maximum of $15 on each person.

  1. inequalities may have a range of solutions, equations have specific solutions.

    No on your example, she could spend one dollar on one, 30 dollars on the second, and then the rest on the third.
    x+y+z<= $45 is a better inequality....

  3. Would this sound better?

    An airline says you can only have 50 lb. Per person on a flight. You pack a 38 lb. bag. How much can your second bag weigh?

    38 + b ≤ 50
    38 + b - 38 ≤ 50 - 38
    b ≤ 11 lb.

    This means if the first bag weighs 38 lbs., the second bag can only weigh 11 lbs.
