Two-Step Inequality (Word Problems) Worksheet

8 problems

The non-equal comparison made between two numbers or mathematical expressions is known as inequality. Inequality shows that an expression is either smaller than or greater than another expression. Those inequalities that involve two steps in solving are known as two-step inequalities. In a layman’s language, this means that you will have to multiply, divide, add, or subtract two times in order to solve the inequality that you are presented with. Word problems related to two-step inequality are very helpful to understand inequalities as they are usually associated with the problems of real life.
