 Amsco Integrated Algebra I: Using Inequalities to Solve Problems
This is a free lesson from our course in Amsco's Integrated Algebra
This lesson explains, taking forward learning on basics and graphing of inequalities in earlier lesson, how to solve problems using inequalities. A solution to any inequality is any number that makes the inequality true. Many problems can be solved by writing an equality that describes how the numbers in the problem are related and then solving the inequality.
The inequalities also have principles dealing with addition and multiplication. Take an illustration, in case of addition: if a > b then a + c > b + c. In cases of multiplication: if a >b and c is positive, then ac > bc and if a > b and c is negative, then ac < bc. (More text below video...)

(Continued from above) For example: The solution to inequality x + 4 > 8 is,
Using the addition principle, add -4 to each side of the inequality, which yields x + 4 - 4 > 8 – 4. After simplification, the answer is x > 4.
Similarly to solve the inequality -4x < .8, multiply both sides by – 0.25, followed by reversing the signs. It results: -0.25(-4x) > -0.25(.8) i.e. x > - 0.2 The video below will explain in detail with the help of several examples.

As many of you know, Winpossible's online courses use a unique teaching method where an instructor explains the concepts in any given area to you in his/her own voice and handwriting, just like you see your teacher explain things to you on a blackboard in your classroom. This particular lesson includes the teacher's instruction, practice questions as well as end-of-lesson quizzes for practice. As we mentioned above, you can enroll in our online course in Trigonometry by clicking here.

The format of Winpossible's online courses is also very suitable for teachers who are using an interactive whiteboard such as Smartboard on Promethean in their classrooms, because the course lessons can be easily displayed on such interactive whiteboards. Volume pricing is available for schools interested in our online courses. For more information, please contact us at
