- Solving two-step inequalities
- Use addition or subtraction to get the variable term alone.
- Use multiplication or division to get the variable alone.
- If you multiplied or divided both sides by a negative number:

CHANGE THE DIRECTION OF THE INEQUALITY OPERATOR.

First use inverse operations to get the variable term alone on one side of the inequality. Then use inverse operations again to get the variable alone on one side of the inequality.

Operation | + | - | • | ÷ |
---|---|---|---|---|

Inverse | - | + | ÷ | • |
