**In this video you will learn how to graph inequalities on a number line.**

## Inequalities Symbols

**Keywords: Inequalities | | 6th Grade Math | Graphing Inequalities on a Number Line | Inequalities Symbols**

Symbol | Meaning | Word Phases |

< | Less Than | Fewer than, Less than |

> | Greater Than | More than, Greater than |

≥ | Greater than and Equal to | * At least * No fewer than * A mimimum of * No less than |

≤ | Less Than and Equal to | * At most * No more than * A maximum of * Any more than |

≠ | Not equal to | * Does not * Is not |

An open point on a number line means the number is not included in the solution.

For example: **x < 4 **

A closed point on a number line means the number is included in the solution.

For example: **x ≤ 5**

A graph pointing in two different directions will us the word " and"

For example: **x < 3 and x ≥ 8**

If the variable is in the middle of two inequalities, then you will use " or"

For example: ** x > 4 or ≤ 8**
