{{ printedBook.courseTrack.name }} {{ printedBook.name }} An inequality involving the comparison of two quantities that are strictly *not equal* is called a **strict inequality**. There are two main kinds of strict inequalities:
$is less than:is greater than: <> $
The boundary values in strict inequalities are *not* included in the solution set. To indicate this graphically, an open point $(∘)$ is used on number line inequalities and a dashed boundary curve is used on two-dimensional inequalities.

On the other hand, an inequality that compares two quantities that are *not necessarily* equal is called a **non-strict inequality**. There are two main kinds of non-strict inequalities:
$is less than or equal to:is greater than or equal to: ≤≥ $
The boundary values in non-strict inequalities *are* included in the solution set. To indicate this graphically, a closed point $(∙)$ is used on number line inequalities and a solid boundary curve is used on two-dimensional inequalities.
