### How do tell the solution of an inequality?

Substitute the values of the variables into the inequality. If
the inequality is true then they are a solution, if not, they are
not.

### How does the solution to an inequality differ from the solution to an equation?

The solution to an inequality generally is a region with one
more dimension.
If the inequality/equation is of the form x < a or x = a then
the solution to the inequality is the 1 dimensional line segment
while the solution to the equality is a point which has no
dimensions.
If the inequality/equation is in 2 dimensions, the solution to
the inequality is an area whereas the solution to the equality is a
1-d line or curve.
And so on, in higher dimensional spaces.

### If you replace the equal sign of an equation an put an inequality sign in its place is there ever a time when the same value will be a solution to both the equation and inequality?

Yes, when the inequality has a less that or equal to sign, or a greater than sign or equal to sign, then the equal sign can be replaced and get a solution that is common to both the equation and the inequality. There can also be other solutions to the inequality, where as the solution for the equation will be a valid one.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### The solutions to a linear inequality are the points in the plane that make the inequality true?

Yes, and no.
The solution set to an inequality are those points which satisfy
the inequality.
A linear inequality is one in which no variable has a power
greater than 1. Only if there are two variables will the solution
be points in a plane; if there are more than two variables then the
solution set will be points in a higher space, for example the
solution set to the linear inequality x + y + z < 1 is a set of
points in three dimensional space.
