To solve the compound inequality, we have to solve each of the inequalities separately. Since the word between the individual inequalities is "or," the solution set for the compound inequality consists of both solution sets.
Inequalities can be solved in the same way as equations, by performing inverse operations on both sides until the variable is isolated.
This inequality tells us that all values greater than or equal to 1 will satisfy the inequality. Thus, we can graph it on a number line with a closed circle at 1 and the solution set represented to the right.
Again, we'll solve the inequality by isolating the variable.
