Question

# Write an inequality to represent the following:

Any number greater than 5

- x > 5
- x ≥ 5
- x < 5
- x ≤ 5

Hint:

### An inequality is a relation which makes a non-equal comparison between two numbers or other mathematical expressions.

## The correct answer is: x > 5

### We have to write an expression for a number greater than 5.

Let the number be x. Then,

x > 5.

Hence, the correct option is B.

It is used most often to compare two numbers on the number line by their size.

### What is the solution of 0.2 x -4 - 2x < - 0.4 and 3x + 2.7 <3 ?

We have to follow the rules of inequalities to solve such questions. We have to swap the inequality when we divide it or multiply it by a negative number. In such questions, we find the values of the variables which makes the statement of inequalities true.
