 I. Solving Statements of Equality Graphically.
 The intersection is the solution.

 If there is an intersection of the two graphs, there is a solution.

 If there is no intersection of the two graphs, there is no solution.

 II. Solving Statements Graphically.
 If the statement is an inequality, the solution may be one or more
intevals of numbers.

 Ex. 1: Solve: x  2 < 1
 Translation: When is the distance from 2 less than 1?
 Answer: Within one unit of 2: 1 < x < 3.


 Ex. 2: Solve: x  2 > 1
 Translation: When is the distance from 2 greater than 1?
 Answer: When the number is more than 1 than
1 unit from 2 in either direction: x < 1 or x > 3.
