**Inequalities**

There are 30 chairs in Priya’s Class, that implies that number of students in her class is less than or equal to 30. We can represent this statement mathematically using inequalities.

Student Count ≤ 30.

An inequality is a relation that holds between two values when they are different. E.g. x < 5

Here there is a relation between x & 5.

2 real numbers or algebraic expressions related by symbol ‘<’, ‘>’, ‘≤’ or ‘≥’ form inequality.

The study of inequalities is very useful in solving problems in the field of science, mathematics, statistics, optimisation problems, economics, psychology, etc.
