# Worksheet on Laws of Inequality

Practice the questions given in the worksheet on laws of inequality.

1. State true or false.

(i) x < - y  ⟹ -x > y

(ii) -5x ≥ 15 ⟹ x ≥ -3

(iii) 2x ≤ -7 ⟹ $$\frac{2x}{-4}$$ ≥ $$\frac{-7}{-4}$$

(iv) 7 > 5 ⟹ $$\frac{1}{7}$$ < $$\frac{1}{5}$$

2. If x ≥ -y then mark each of the following sentences as true or false.

(i) - x ≥ -y

(ii) x + 2 ≤ y + 3

(iii) $$\frac{x}{3}$$ ≤ $$\frac{y}{3}$$

(iv) ax ≥ ay, where a < 0

3. State, whether the following statements are true or false.

(i) If ax + b > c then ax > c - b

(ii) If ax + b > c then x < $$\frac{c - b}{a}$$, where a is a negative number.

(iii) If a > b then a + c > b + c

(iv) If a > b then a - c > b - c

(v) If a < b, then a - c < b - c

(vi) If a < b then ac < bc, c ≠ 0.

(vii) If a < b, then ac > bc

(viii) If a > b then $$\frac{a}{c}$$ > $$\frac{b}{c}$$, c ≠ 0.

(ix) If a - c < b - d then a + d < b + c.

(x) If a < b, and c > 0, then a - c > b - c, where a, b, c and d are real numbers and c ≠ 0.

4. If x > -5, find the least positive and negative integral values of x.

5. (i) If (x - 2)(x - 5) < 0 and x ∈ N then find x.

(ii) If (x + 3)(2 - x) > 0 and x ∈ Z then find x.

6. If 5 – 2x ≥ 1, what is the maximum value of x?

7. If x > y and z < 0, which of the following is correct?

(i) xz > yz

(ii) xz < yz
