Inequalities are a way to compare two numbers and determine if one is greater than, less than or equal to the other. By using a number line, students can visually see which number is greater or less than the other. The symbols used in inequalities are > (greater than), < (less than), ≥ (greater than or equal to) and ≤ (less than or equal to). It is important to understand the difference between these symbols and how to determine if a statement is true or false.
