VocabularyCompound InequalityDefinitionThe inequalities you have seen so far are simple inequalities. When two simple inequalities are combined into one statement by the words AND or OR, the result is called a compound inequality.Compound Inequality the result of combining two inequalities. The words and and or are used to describe how the two parts are related. In this diagram, set A represents some integer solutions of x < 10, and set B represents some integer solutions of x > 0. The overlapping region represents numbers that belong in set A and set B. Those numbers are solutions of both x < 10 and x > 0 (can be written 0 < x < 10).

Venn Diagram and Compound InequalitiesYou can graph the solutions of a compound inequality involving AND by using the idea of an overlapping region. The overlapping region is called the intersection and shows the numbers that are solutions of both inequalities.

Number Line and Compound InequalitiesIn this diagram, set A represents some integer solutions of x < 0, and set B represents some integer solutions of x > 10. The combined shaded regions represent numbers that are solutions of either x < 0 or x >10 (or both).

Venn Diagram and Compound InequalitiesYou can graph the solutions of a compound inequality involving OR by using the idea of combining regions. The combined regions are called the union and show the numbers that are solutions of either inequality.

>Number Line and Compound Inequalities

Compound InequalitiesWrite a compound inequality for each statement.A. A number x is both less than 4 and greater than or equal to 2.5. 2.5 x < 4 B. A number t is either greater than 1 or less than or equal to 7.t > 1 or t 7Example:Write a compound inequality for each statement.A. A number t is both greater than 9 and less than or equal to 18.5 9 < t 18.5B. A number y is either greater than 5 or less than or equal to 1.y > 5 or y 1Your Turn:The and compound inequality y < 2 and y < 4 can be written as 2 < y < 4.The or compound inequality y < 1 or y > 9 must be written with the word or.Writing MathThe shaded portion of the graph is not between two values, so the compound inequality involves OR.On the left, the graph shows an arrow pointing left, so use either < or . The solid circle at 8 means 8 is a solution so use . x 8On the right, the graph shows an arrow pointing right, so use either > or . The empty circle at 0 means that 0 is not a solution, so use >. x > 0

Write the compound inequality shown by the graph.Example: Writing Compound Inequalities

The compound inequality is x 8 OR x > 0.The shaded portion of the graph is between the values 2 and 5, so the compound inequality involves AND.The shaded values are on the right of 2, so use > or . The empty circle at 2 means 2 is not a solution, so use >.m > 2The shaded values are to the left of 5, so use < or . The empty circle at 5 means that 5 is not a solution so use 2 AND m < 5 (or 2 < m < 5).

The shaded portion of the graph is between the values 9 and 2, so the compound inequality involves AND.The shaded values are on the right of 9, so use > or . The empty circle at 9 means 9 is not a solution, so use >.x > 9 The shaded values are to the left of 2, so use < or . The empty circle at 2 means that 2 is not a solution so use or . The solid circle at 2 means that 2 is a solution, so use . x 2

Write the compound inequality shown by the graph.Your Turn:

3 < x 4Since 1 is subtracted from 3x, add 1 to each part of the inequality. Since x is multiplied by 3, divide each part of the inequality by 3 to undo the multiplication. The solution set is {x:3 < x 4}.Example: Solving and Compound Inequalities54321012345Solve the compound inequality and graph the solutions.9 < x 10 < 5+10 +10 +109 < x 10 < 51 < x < 5Since 10 is subtracted from x, add 10 to each part of the inequality.54321012345The solution set is {x:1 < x < 5}.Graph 1 < x < 5.Your Turn:1 < x < 5Solve the compound inequality and graph the solutions.4 3n + 5 < 114 3n + 5 < 115 5 59 3n < 6
