- What are the rules for determining whether a product is positive or negative?
- What are the rules for determining whether a quotient is positive or negative?
- Will the value of
*x*that makes the inequality true be positive or negative? - If you change the inequality sign to an equal sign, what value of
*x*will make the resulting equation true? How can you use this information to help you find the possible values for*x*in the inequality? - How can you keep track of the values you try for
*x*and the results for each value? Can you make a table?
