MAT 116 Week 3 DQs
MAT116 Week 3 Discussion Question 1
Post your responses to the following:
Why does the inequality sign change when both sides are multiplied or divided by a
negative number? Does this happen with equations? Why or why not?
Write an inequality for your classmates to solve. In your inequality, use both the
multiplication and addition properties of inequalities.
Consider solving your classmates inequalities. Explain how you arrived at your answers. Also, help other students who may be having difficulty solving inequalities. Ask clarifying questions if you need additional assistance.
MAT116 Week 3 Discussion Question 2
Post your response to the following:
How do you know if a value is a solution for an inequality? How is this different from determining if a value is a solution to an equation?
If you replace the equal sign of an equation with an inequality sign, is there ever a time when the same value will be a solution to both the equation and the inequality?
Write an inequality and provide a value that may or may not be a solution to the inequality.
Consider responding to a classmate by determining whether or not the solution provided is a solution to the inequality. If the value he or she provides is a solution, provide a value that is not a solution. If the value is not a solution, provide a value that is a solution.
