In an equation, what is to the left of the equals sign equals what is to the right. In an inequality, the left side is either less than, greater than, less than or equal to, or greater than or equal to the right side.

"No less than" is the same as "greater than or equal": write the greater-than sign, with a line (similar to an underline) underneath.

No. To be an inequality, it must somewhere have a greater than, less than, greater-or-equal, or less-or-equal sign.

An inequality must have a greater than sign (>) OR a less than sign (<) OR a greater than or equal to sign (≥) OR a less than or equal to sign (≤).

"x3" is not an inequality. An inequality will have one of the following signs: less-than, less-than-or-equal, greater-than, greater-than-or-equal. for example: 3x - 5 < 15

The line is dotted when the inequality is a strict inequality, ie it is either "less than" (<) or "greater than" (>). If there is an equality in the inequality, ie "less than or equal to" (≤), "greater than or equal to" (≥) or "equal to" (=) then the line is drawn as a solid line.

Greater than or equal to

an inequality

It means that two expressions are not equal, as in a # b (Using "#" for inequality). A statement that includes "less than", "less than or equal", "greater than", or "greater than or equal", can also be considered an inequality, for example, | x | < 5
