Inequalities are similar to equations but will involve less than (<) or greater than (>). The biggest difference in solving inequalities is to remember that whenever multiplying or dividing by a negative, the inequality will reverse. For example, -2 < 3, but if you multiply each number by -1, you will get 2 > -3.
