Solving a linear inequality in one variable is much like solving a linear equation in one variable. To solve the inequality, you isolate the variable on one side using transformations that produce equivalent inequalities, which have the same solution(s).
Solve x+5≥3. Graph the solution.
x+5 
≥ 
3 

Write original inequality 
x+55 
≥ 
35 

Subtract 5 from each side 
x 
≥ 
2 

Simplify 
The solution is all real numbers greater than or equal to 2.
