# Solving Word Problems in AlgebraPractice Problems

Are you ready to practice inequalities by solving these word problems? Yes... I do know the answer by now - but - I know you can do it! Now, I want you to prove it to yourself.

Let's quickly recap a few things and you'll be on your way!

Let's keep these key words for inequalities handy:

• at least - means greater than or equal to

• no more than - means less than or equal to

• more than - means greater than

• less than - means less than

Work through each problem slowly and start by identifying your variables. Then write an inequality that represents the problem.

Once you've written the inequality, the hard work is done and you are ready to solve!

Don't forget to check your answers at the end. This is definintely a habit that you want to set for yourself.

Ok... get to work!

## Practice Problems

### Problem 1

Did you notice how once you solve the inequality you were able to answer the question? Hopefully you had no problems and you are ready to move on to problem number two!

### Problem 2

Great Job! Keep up the good work!

Now you are ready to move on to Graphing Inequalities

### What People Are Saying...

"I'd like to start off by relaying my sincerest gratitude for your dedication in teaching algebra. Your methodology is by far the simplest to follow, primarily because you take the time to include the small steps in between that most other teachers leave out.

It helps to know why you are doing something. I am 45 and heading to college to get my BS in Business. I need to brush up, hence the visit to your site. Great Job!"

"I stumbled onto your site after I found out that I needed to use some fundamental algebra for an assignment. Turns out I had forgotten some things and your great site helped me remember them like "that" (snap of fingers). The organization of the site let me find exactly what I was looking for so easily. Kudos to you for maintaining such a great resource for students of all ages!"

Tom - United States

"I just wanted to write and basically thank you for making such a wonderful website! I'm 20 years old and about to take a basic placement test for college. I wanted to brush up on my Algebra skills and I stumbled upon your site. I'm amazed at how simple you make it and how fast I'm remembering Algebra! I don't remember getting most of the answers right when I had an actual teacher in front of me teaching this. Thanks a lot!"

"I am a pensioner living in South Africa. I stumbled on your website, the best thing that could ever happen to me! Your course in Algebra has helped me a lot to better understand the different concepts. Thank you very much for sharing your skills for teaching math to even people like me. Please do not stop, as I am sure that your teachings have helped thousands of people like me all over the world."

This is an amazing program. In one weekend I used it to teach my Grade 9 daughter most of the introductory topics in Linear Relations. I took her up to Rate of Change and now she can do her homework by herself.
