One-step inequalities: One term on each side
Two-step inequalities: Usually on term on one side, 2 on the other

#### Explanation:

Simply put, one-step inequalities will have one term on each side of the inequality, and require one step in solving (in the case below, dividing both sides by 3).

Example: $3 x < 57$

Two-step inequalities will involve two steps, where you may have to add or subtract a term from both sides to isolate the variable (in the case below, subtracting 3 from both sides, dividing both sides by 2).

Example: $2 x + 3 \le 11$
