I assume you mean "inequality". An equation has an equal sign; an inequality has one of the inequality signs instead of an equal sign. These signs are:

* Greater than

* Greater than or equal

* Less than

* Less than or equal

To solve an inequality, the main point to consider is that if you multiply or divide both sides by a negative number, you must invert the inequality sign. For example, if you multiply both sides by (-2), a greater-than sign would need to be changed to a less-than sign.
