HELP ME. How is an inequality different from an equation? Give a real-world scenario in which you would write an inequality rather than an equation.

equation says two things are equal x+y = 3 inequality says they are not, and in what way. x+y <= 3 x/2 > y+7 The big clue is equality and inequality If there is minus the inequality sign will change while equation dose not change e.g a<-3 that is a>-3 while a=-3 also a=-3

an inequality literally means that something is not equal, for example, if you wrote 5 = 6, you would be wrong, because 5 and 6 are not the same number. however, if you wrote 5 < 6, this is correct, ad this symbol means 'less than'. think of the symbol as a crocodile's mouth and it always wants to eat the biggest number, and then you know which of the two signs (< or >) to use.
