3-3: Solving Inequalities Using
Multiplication and Division
Objective:
• You will be able to find solutions for inequalities by solving using multiplication and division.
Definitions:
equation
inequality
Solving an ___________________ is like solving an ________________.
ALONE
variable
The “goal” is to get the ________________ ___________ on one side of the inequality.
The “rules” are the same as when solving equations: multiply
• If you __________________ one side of the inequality by a number, multiply
you have to __________________ the other side of the inequality by the same number.
divide
• If you ______________ one side of the inequality by a number, you have
divide
to ______________ the other side of the inequality by the same number.

Investigation for 3­3
Multiplying Each Side of an Inequality
Consider the inequality 4 > 1.
1. Complete each statement below by replacing each with <, >, or =.
4 • 3 1 • 3
4 • 2 1 • 2
4 • 1 1 • 1
4 • ­1 1 • ­1
4 • 0 1 • 0
4 • ­2 1 • ­2
4 • ­3 1 • ­3
2. What happens to the inequality symbol when you multiply each side by a positive number?
3. What happens to the inequality symbol when you multiply each side by zero?
4. What happens to the inequality symbol when you multiply each side by a negative number?

The special “rules” are:
negative
multiply
• If you ______________ one side of the inequality by a ______________ flip
number, you must __________ the inequality sign.
negative
divide
• If you ______________ one side of the inequality by a ______________ flip
number, you must __________ the inequality sign.
