MA.7.AR.2.1

Write and solve one-step inequalities in one variable within a mathematical context and represent solutions algebraically or graphically.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Instruction focuses on the properties of inequality. Refer to Properties of Operations, Equality and Inequality (Appendix D).

Clarification 2: Instruction includes inequalities in the forms begin mathsize 12px style p x greater than q end style;begin mathsize 12px style x over p greater than q end style; x±p>q and p±x>q, where p and q are specific rational numbers and any inequality symbol can be represented.

Clarification 3: Problems include inequalities where the variable may be on either side of the inequality symbol.
