We have basic an advanced printable inequality worksheets available down below.

An inequality is a method used to express a comparison between two values of any form that are not equal to each other. In most cases the comparison in questions is between two formulas that can take on many different forms. There are five different form of inequalities: not equal to, less than, greater than, less than or equal to, and greater than or equal to. This math concept while seemingly abstract is used constantly in the real world. They help businesses lean how to make smart decisions. The help schools determine which bus route is the most effective for their students. We use inequalities to state the relationship between two expressions that aren't equal. The beginning of the word says it all "Inequal" = not equal. You probably weren't aware that we use inequalities all the time, even in daily language. If we say for example "Sarah and Tara raced down the ski slope. Tara was faster down the slop and won the race." You can write this as S = Sarah and T = Tara. Therefore T is greater than S or T > S.

Your students will use these worksheets to learn how to construct inequalities based on given information, which may appear as visual cues (such as circles placed on number lines, for example). These sets of worksheets contain all step by step introductory material, simple exercises, longer assignments, reviews, and quizzes. Below you will find over 112 inequality worksheets that start out with simple linear comparisons to actual solving or displaying expressions on a graph. These worksheets really run the gamut from the most basic form to understanding the possible ranges of their solution. The purpose of an inequality is to set up a range or limit as to how big or small a value can be.

Absolute Value Inequalities

Remember that the value that we are looking at the absolute value of is just a measure of how far it is distanced from zero.

Applied Problems of Inequalities

We look at how people run into and tackle problems like this every day.

Displaying Inequalities

These are done on a number line. It is a three-step process. Identify the starting position, the direction and magnitude of the arrow. Finish off by deciding if the place holder is open or closed.

Graphing Inequalities

This concept is pretty foreign to students because they are not familiar with graphs that do not plot exact points.

Graphing Systems of Inequalities

Sometimes you will just choose your own points to work with and other times you will be able to clearly see those points.

Linear Inequalities

These describe a basic area on a coordinate system with a barrier line.

Multi-Step Inequalities

The process we use here is very similar to solve your everyday equation.

Quadratic Inequalities

These are functions that contain a degree of 2. You need to remember that in these circumstances y is not always equal to the function.

Rational Inequalities

These all contain a rational expression. The best way to approach these is by trying to get the zero to one side.

Solving Inequalities by Adding & Subtracting

The whole trick is to arrange them in an understandable manner for yourself.

Solving Inequalities by Multiplying or Dividing

Do not forget to pay attention to the direction of the inequality, it will always affect your final answer.

Triangle Inequality Theorem

When I first heard of this theorem it seemed like common sense. When you add any 2 sides of a triangle, they must be greater than third side. Otherwise you would have some weird shape.
