Solve Liner Inequlities Using the Addition Property of Inequlity. 3 Solve Liner Inequlities Using the Multipliction nd the Addition Properties of Inequlity. 4 Solve Problems Tht Cn Be Modeled by Liner Inequlities. Reltionships mong mesurble quntities re not lwys described by equtions. For exmple, suppose tht slesperson erns bse of $600 per month plus commission of 0% of sles. Suppose we wnt to find the minimum mount of sles needed to receive totl income of t lest $1500 per month. Here, the phrse t lest implies tht n income of $1500 or more is cceptble. In symbols, we cn write income Ú 1500 This is n exmple of n inequlity, nd we will solve this problem in Exmple 8. A liner inequlity is similr to liner eqution except tht the equlity symbol is replced with n inequlity symbol, such s 6, 7,, or Ú.

In this section, when we mke definitions, stte properties, or list steps bout n inequlity contining the symbol 6, we men tht the definition, property, or steps lso pply to inequlities contining the symbols 7,, nd Ú. 1 Using Intervl Nottion A solution of n inequlity is vlue of the vrible tht mkes the inequlity true sttement. The solution set of n inequlity is the set of ll solutions. Notice tht the solution set of the inequlity x 7, for exmple, contins ll numbers greter thn. Its grph is n intervl on the number line since n infinite number of vlues stisfy the vrible. If we use open/closed-circle nottion, the grph of 5x x 7 6 looks like the following In this text intervl nottion will be used to write solution sets of inequlities. To help us understnd this nottion, different grphing nottion will be used. Insted of n open circle, we use prenthesis. With this new nottion, the grph of 5x x 7 6 now looks like nd cn be represented in intervl nottion s 1,. The symbol is red infinity nd indictes tht the intervl includes ll numbers greter thn. The left prenthesis indictes tht is not included in the intervl. When is included in the intervl, we use brcket. The grph of 5x x Ú 6 is below nd cn be represented s [,. The following tble shows three equivlent wys to describe n intervl: in set nottion, s grph, nd in intervl nottion.

To solve liner inequlity, we use process similr to the one used to solve liner eqution. We use properties of inequlities to write equivlent inequlities until the vrible is isolted.

3 Section.4 Liner Inequlities nd Problem Solving 79 Addition Property of Inequlity If, b, nd c re rel numbers, then 6 b nd + c 6 b + c re equivlent inequlities. In other words, we my dd the sme rel number to both sides of n inequlity, nd the resulting inequlity will hve the sme solution set. This property lso llows us to subtrct the sme rel number from both sides. EXAMPLE nottion. Solve: x Grph the solution set nd write it in intervl Solution x x Add to both sides. x 6 7 Simplify. The solution set is 5x x 6 76, which in intervl nottion is 1 -, 7. The grph of the solution set is Solve: x Grph the solution set nd write it in intervl nottion. Helpful Hint In Exmple, the solution set is 5x x This mens tht ll numbers less thn 7 re solutions. For exmple, 6.9, 0, -p, 1, nd re solutions, just to nme few. To see this, replce x in x with ech of these numbers nd see tht the result is true inequlity. EXAMPLE 3 Solve: 3x + 4 Ú x - 6. Grph the solution set nd write it in intervl nottion. Solution 3x + 4 Ú x - 6 3x x Ú x x Subtrct x from both sides. x + 4 Ú -6 x Ú -6-4 x Ú -10 Combine like terms. Subtrct 4 from both sides. Simplify. The solution set is 5x x Ú -106, which in intervl nottion is [-10,. The grph of the solution set is Solve: 3x + 1 x - 3. Grph the solution set nd write it in intervl nottion. 3 Solving Liner Inequlities Using the Multipliction nd Addition Properties Next, we introduce nd use the multipliction property of inequlity to solve liner inequlities. To understnd this property, let s strt with the true sttement nd multiply both sides by.

4 80 CHAPTER Equtions, Inequlities, nd Problem Solving Multiply by. True The sttement remins true. Notice wht hppens if both sides of re multiplied by Multiply by -. Flse The inequlity is flse sttement. However, if the direction of the inequlity sign is reversed, the result is true True These exmples suggest the following property. Multipliction Property of Inequlity If, b, nd c re rel numbers nd c is positive, then * b nd c * bc re equivlent inequlities. If, b, nd c re rel numbers nd c is negtive, then * b nd c + bc re equivlent inequlities. In other words, we my multiply both sides of n inequlity by the sme positive rel number nd the result is n equivlent inequlity. We my lso multiply both sides of n inequlity by the sme negtive number nd reverse the direction of the inequlity symbol, nd the result is n equivlent inequlity. The multipliction property holds for division lso, since division is defined in terms of multipliction. Helpful Hint Whenever both sides of n inequlity re multiplied or divided by negtive number, the direction of the inequlity symbol must be reversed to form n equivlent inequlity. EXAMPLE 4 intervl nottion x 3 8 Solve nd grph the solution set. Write the solution set in b. -.3x Helpful Hint The inequlity symbol is the sme since we re multiplying by positive number. Solution. 1 4 x # 1 4 x 4 # 3 8 x 3 Multiply both sides by 4. Simplify. The solution set is e x ` x 3 f, which in intervl nottion is -, 3 d. The grph of the solution set is w

5 Section.4 Liner Inequlities nd Problem Solving 81 Helpful Hint The inequlity symbol is reversed since we divided by negtive number. b. -.3x x x 7-3 Divide both sides by -.3 nd reverse the inequlity symbol. Simplify. The solution set is 5x x 7-36, which is 1-3, in intervl nottion. The grph of the solution set is Solve nd grph the solution set. Write the solution set in intervl nottion.. 5 x Ú 4 15 b. -.4x CONCEPT CHECK In which of the following inequlities must the inequlity symbol be reversed during the solution process?. -x 7 7 b. x c. -x x 6 7 d. -x To solve liner inequlities in generl, we follow steps similr to those for solving liner equtions. Solving Liner Inequlity in One Vrible Step 1. Step. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Cler the inequlity of frctions by multiplying both sides of the inequlity by the lest common denomintor (LCD) of ll frctions in the inequlity. Use the distributive property to remove grouping symbols such s prentheses. Combine like terms on ech side of the inequlity. Use the ddition property of inequlity to write the inequlity s n equivlent inequlity with vrible terms on one side nd numbers on the other side. Use the multipliction property of inequlity to isolte the vrible. Helpful Hint Don t forget tht 5 x mens the sme s x Ú 5. Answer to Concept Check:, d EXAMPLE 5 Solve: -1x x x. Solution -1x x x -x x x 5 - x 7x x + x 7x x 5 8x x x 0 8 8x 8 5 x, or x Ú 5 Apply the distributive property. Combine like terms. Add x to both sides. Combine like terms. Add 15 to both sides.

Subtrct 5x from both sides. Add 1 to both sides. Divide both sides by -3 nd reverse the inequlity symbol. Simplify. The solution set written in intervl nottion is -, - 7 d nd its grph is Solve: 3 1x - 3 Ú x - 7. Grph nd write the solution set in intervl 5 nottion. EXAMPLE 7 Solve: 1x x + 1. Solution 1x x + 1 x x + 1 x x 7 x x Distribute on the left side. Subtrct x from both sides. Simplify is true sttement for ll vlues of x, so this inequlity nd the originl inequlity re true for ll numbers. The solution set is 5x x is rel number6, or 1 -, in intervl nottion, nd its grph is Solve: 41x - 6 4x + 5. Grph nd write the solution set in intervl nottion.

7 Section.4 Liner Inequlities nd Problem Solving 83 4 Solving Problems Modeled by Liner Inequlities Appliction problems contining words such s t lest, t most, between, no more thn, nd no less thn usully indicte tht n inequlity is to be solved insted of n eqution. In solving pplictions involving liner inequlities, we use the sme procedure s when we solved pplictions involving liner equtions. EXAMPLE 8 Clculting Income with Commission A slesperson erns $600 per month plus commission of 0% of sles. Find the minimum mount of sles needed to receive totl income of t lest $1500 per month. Solution 1. UNDERSTAND. Red nd rered the problem. Let x = mount of sles.. TRANSLATE. As stted in the beginning of this section, we wnt the income to be greter thn or equl to $1500. To write n inequlity, notice tht the slesperson s income consists of $600 plus commission (0% of sles). commission In words: Ú , of sles T T T Trnslte: x Ú SOLVE the inequlity for x x Ú x Ú x Ú 900 x Ú INTERPRET. Check: The income for sles of $4500 is , or Thus, if sles re greter thn or equl to $4500, income is greter thn or equl to $1500. Stte: The minimum mount of sles needed for the slesperson to ern t lest $1500 per month is $4500 per month. 8 A slesperson erns $900 month plus commission of 15% of sles. Find the minimum mount of sles needed to receive totl income of t lest $400 per month. EXAMPLE 9 Finding the Annul Consumption In the United Sttes, the nnul consumption of cigrettes is declining. The consumption c in billions of cigrettes per yer since the yer 000 cn be pproximted by the formul c = -9.4t where t is the number of yers fter 000. Use this formul to predict the yers tht the consumption of cigrettes will be less thn 00 billion per yer. Solution 1. UNDERSTAND. Red nd rered the problem. To become fmilir with the given formul, let s find the cigrette consumption fter 0 yers, which would be the yer , or 00. To do so, we substitute 0 for t in the given formul. c = = 43

8 84 CHAPTER Equtions, Inequlities, nd Problem Solving Thus, in 00, we predict cigrette consumption to be bout 43 billion. Vribles hve lredy been ssigned in the given formul. For review, they re c = the nnul consumption of cigrettes in the United Sttes in billions of cigrettes nd t = the number of yers fter 000. TRANSLATE. We re looking for the yers tht the consumption of cigrettes c is less thn 00. Since we re finding yers t, we substitute the expression in the formul given for c, or -9.4t SOLVE the inequlity. -9.4t t t t 7 pproximtely INTERPRET. Check: Substitute number greter thn 4.6 nd see tht c is less thn 00. Stte: The nnul consumption of cigrettes will be less thn 00 billion more thn 4.6 yers fter 000, or pproximtely for = 05 nd ll yers fter. 9 Use the formul given in Exmple 9 to predict when the consumption of cigrettes will be less thn 75 billion per yer.
