# What is an algebraic inequality?

See below:

#### Explanation:

An algebraic equality is when we have two statements and then say that they are equal. For instance:

$\frac{4}{2} = 2$ is an equality

$\frac{4}{2} = x$ is also an equality (and here we'd be looking for the value $x$)

An algebraic inequality is when there isn't a specific value or number where both sides equal each other. Instead, we'll be looking for a range of values that satisfy the statement. For instance:

$\frac{4}{2} < x$

We know that the value $x$ is all values less than 2 (there's an infinite number of solutions).
