In this lesson you will learn the fundamentals of equations, inequalities and there respective solutions.  Of course equations and inequalities are everywhere in algebra so you want to grasp the “big picture” concepts of what equations and inequalities represent mathematically.  Also there are significant differences in the solutions between an equation and inequality. Lastly you will be introduced to verifying if a number is a “solution” to an equation or inequality- you will be asked to verify solutions a lot in algebra so pay close attention.
