    iii) How to graph inequalities on a number line?
  1. Solve.
    1. 7x637x \le 63
    2. 18x - \frac{1}{8}x > 5 - 5
    3. 3x1.33 \ge \frac{x}{{1.3}}
    4. 2.4x2.4x < 1.8 -1.8
  2. Determine if the solution is correct for each inequality.
    1. 21.4x21.4 - x < 17 17; x=8x = 8
    2. 25x5 - \frac{2}{5}x \le 5; x=2x = - 2
    3. 313x31 \ge - 3x; x=1.5x = 1.5
    4. 58x\frac{5}{8}x < 2.6 2.6; x=0.54x = 0.54
  3. In a pizza restaurant, you need to order a minimum of $30 of pizzas to get a free drink. If each pizza is $7.45, how many pizzas do you need to order to get the free drink?
