Solving Word Problems in Algebra
Practice 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!
