# Solve Compound Inequalities Worksheet

## 6 problems

Solving compound inequalities refers to solving inequalities that have two or more inequalities in them. These inequalities are a combination of two or more inequalities linked by the words “and” or “or”. In this process, we solve for the value of the variable that fits the inequality by using inverse operations but with more than one condition at a time. In these worksheets, students will solve the inequalities linked by “and” or “or”.

For example: Solve –4>v–17≥–11 for v.

Choices: [[13 > v > 6][v > 13 or v ≤ 6][13 > v ≥ 6][v > 13 or v < 6]]

## Solved Example

Q. Solve for $g$. $\newline$$g - 20 > -4$ or $g + 19 \leq 3$$\newline$Write your answer as a compound inequality with integers.$\newline$Choices:$\newline$(A) $16 \geq g \geq -16$$\newline$(B) $g > 16$ or $g \leq -16$$\newline$(C) $16 > g \geq -16$$\newline$(D) $g \geq 16$ or $g \leq -16$
Solution:
1. Isolate $g$ in first part: Solve the first part of the compound inequality $g - 20 > -4$. To isolate $g$, we need to add $20$ to both sides of the inequality. $\newline$$g - 20 + 20 > -4 + 20$ $g > 16$
2. Isolate $g$ in second part: Solve the second part of the compound inequality $g + 19 \leq 3$. To isolate $g$, we need to subtract $19$ from both sides of the inequality. $\newline$$g + 19 - 19 \leq 3 - 19$ $g \leq -16$
3. Combine solutions: Combine the solutions from Step $1$ and Step $2$ to write the final compound inequality.$\newline$The solution is $g > 16$ or $g \leq -16$.
