To write inequalities you first have to know the difference between an inequality and a equation. The difference is that the answer for an inequality can be multiple things but for an equation it can only be one thing. Also, in inequalities there is no equal signs like in equations, instead there are comparing symbols. Such as less than, greater than, less than or equal to, greater than or equal to. When looking at word problems always look for specific phrases such as: Is fewer than, Is less than ( for less than). Is at most, Is no more than ( for less than or equal to). Is more than, Is greater than ( greater than). Lastly, Is at least, Is no less than ( greater than or equal to).
