Graphing inequalities at a glance


Inequalities can be represented graphically. This is useful as it allows us to look for solutions which satisfy more than one inequality at a time. To represent inequalities graphically, we draw the relevant line on a grid and can identify the solutions to the inequality through shading. 


The type of inequality symbol is important and inequalities that have a > or < symbol are drawn with a dotted line whereas those that have a or symbol are drawn with a solid line. 


For example, the inequality x<1 is represented by drawing the line x=1 (using a dotted line). Since x is less than 1, the solution to the inequality is the area to the left of the line. The inequality y>x+2 can be represented by drawing the line y=x+2 (a solid line). The solution is the line and the area above the line.  Single variable inequalities will be indicated by horizontal lines or vertical lines and inequalities in both x and y will be indicated by diagonal lines.


Looking forward, students can then progress to additional inequalities worksheets and other algebra worksheets, for example a sequences worksheet, simultaneous equations worksheet or straight line graphs worksheet.
