Do you know much about solving inequalities? We can often solve inequalities by adding (or subtracting) a number from both sides (just as in Introduction to Algebra).

• 1.

### Inequality tells us about the relative size of how many values?

• A.

One

• B.

Two

• C.

Three

• D.

Four

B. Two
Explanation
Inequality tells us about the relative size of two values. It compares two values and determines if one is greater than, less than, or equal to the other. It helps us understand the relationship between two quantities and is often represented using symbols such as < (less than), > (greater than), or = (equal to). By using inequality, we can compare and analyze the magnitudes of two different values.

### Inequalities in taught under ....

• A.

Maths

• B.

Literature

• C.

Biology

• D.

Music

A. Maths
Explanation
Inequalities are taught under maths because they involve comparing two values or expressions using symbols such as , ≤, and ≥. In mathematics, inequalities are used to represent relationships between numbers and to solve problems involving ranges, intervals, and inequalities. This topic is not typically covered in literature, biology, or music, as it is more closely related to numerical reasoning and mathematical concepts.

### Mathematics is taught in ....

• A.

Museum

• B.

Church

• C.

School

• D.

Restaurant

C. School
Explanation
Mathematics is taught in school because it is a fundamental subject that provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to solve problems, think critically, and understand the world around them. Schools have dedicated math teachers and curriculum that focus on teaching various mathematical concepts and techniques. Additionally, schools provide a structured learning environment where students can engage in mathematical activities, collaborate with their peers, and receive guidance and support from their teachers. Overall, schools are the most appropriate and effective institutions for teaching mathematics.

### What is the symbol for "greater than"?

• A.

=

• B.

• C.

• D.

>

D. >
Explanation
The symbol ">" is used to represent "greater than." It indicates that the value on the left is larger than the value on the right.

### What is the greater than or equal to symbol?

• A.

• B.

• C.

=

• D.

+

B. ≥
Explanation
The greater than or equal to symbol, represented as "≥", is used to compare two values. It indicates that the value on the left side is either greater than or equal to the value on the right side. This symbol is commonly used in mathematics and programming to express relationships between numbers or variables.

### The symbol for less than and equal to is .....

• A.

• B.

=

• C.

• D.

+

A. ≤
Explanation
The symbol ≤ represents "less than or equal to." It is used to compare two values, indicating that the first value is either less than or equal to the second value. This symbol is commonly used in mathematics and inequalities to express relationships between numbers.

### Who is not a mathematician among them?

• A.

Albert Einstein

• B.

Isaac Newton

• C.

Pythagoras

• D.

Hulk Hogan

D. Hulk Hogan
Explanation
Hulk Hogan is not a mathematician because he is a professional wrestler and entertainer, not known for any contributions or expertise in the field of mathematics. On the other hand, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, and Pythagoras are renowned mathematicians who have made significant contributions to the field.

### You flip the inequality sign whenever you multiply or divide the inequality by a ....

• A.

Positive

• B.

Equal sign

• C.

None

• D.

Negative

D. Negative
Explanation
When multiplying or dividing an inequality by a negative number, the direction of the inequality sign must be flipped. This is because multiplying or dividing by a negative number reverses the order of the numbers being compared. So, if we have an inequality such as "x > y" and we multiply or divide both sides by a negative number, the inequality becomes "x < y". Therefore, the correct answer is negative.

### A ..... is someone who uses an extensive knowledge of mathematics in his or her work, typically to solve mathematical problems.

• A.

Mathematician

• B.

Pilot

• C.

Mechanic

• D.

Teacher

A. Mathematician
Explanation
A mathematician is someone who uses an extensive knowledge of mathematics in his or her work, typically to solve mathematical problems. This profession requires a deep understanding of mathematical principles and theories, as well as the ability to apply them in practical and theoretical contexts. Mathematicians often work in research, academia, or industry, where they contribute to the development of new mathematical concepts, algorithms, and models. They are skilled in problem-solving and critical thinking, and their work is crucial in advancing various fields such as physics, engineering, computer science, and finance.
