## Algebra 1 Student Journal 1st Edition Chapter 2 Solving Linear Inequalities

**Page 38 Essential Question Answer**

Solving inequalities is very similar to solving equations.

It just that when we divide we need to reverse the symbol on both sides of the equation by a negative number.

We can solve an inequality by using division just the way we solve an equation just we need to reverse the symbols of both the sides by a negative number.
