Solving Inequalities: Graphing
Learning how to solve systems of equations takes you into the two-dimensional world of ordered pairs and graphed lines with slopes and y-intercepts. The choices of how you find the solution for a system put you in charge, giving you the power to make a decision based on analyzing your options.
This hour, you return to solving problems with just one variable, but it’s not really a step backward. It’s taking the basic properties that help you solve equations and applying these same properties to solve problems you were introduced to in Hour 2—inequalities.
