# Thread: How would I solve this Inequalitie?

1. ## How would I solve this Inequalitie?

Hello,

Could you please explain how to solve this Inequalitie,

0< x < 5
..-... -

Thanks

The symbols are both Less than including 0 and 5.

What do you mean "solve this inequality"?

Solve means to find the values that $x$ can take.

Here you are told what values $x$ can take - all those between 0 and 5 inclusive.

$0 \leq x \leq 5$ is a fully completed solution. It is not possible to know more accurately without more information

4. On a number line, solve all the possible values.

There are still an infinite amount of solutions lying between 0 and 5. For integer values of x: $x = 0,1,2,3,4,5$ but these are not all the values

6. You HAVE shown all possible values.

You have said that x can be any value between 0 and 5 inclusive.

Now just draw this on a number line - use closed dots at 0 and 5.

7. Sorry guys, i mean how to solve this one:

x + 3 > 7

8. Surely if $x + 3 > 7$ then $x > 4$.

9. oh, so you take away, if it's times its divide?

10. Yes, you solve a linear inequation exactly the same way as a linear equation.

The only difference is that if you multiply or divide by a negative number, the inequality sign changes direction.
