Objective: I can solve 2-step inequalities using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

How to solve 2-step inequalities?
A one-step inequality is an algebraic inequality that only needs one step to solve.
To solve two-step inequalities, we get the variable by itself by performing the inverse operation.
Step 1: Add or subtract the constant on both sides of the equation.
Step 2: Eliminate the coefficient through multiplication or division.
This is similar to solving 2-step equations except that whenever we multiply or divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number, we need to reverse the inequality.

2y + 4 > 10, y > 3
-3y - 0.5 ≤ 1, y ≥ 5

Read this if you need more information on how to solve one-step equations.

Match the items on the right to the items on the left.

2y + 4 ≥ 8
2y - 3 ≥ 5
-2y + 1 ≥ 7
-3y + 1 ≥ -8
-3y - 5 ≥ 10
2y - 0.5 > 5.5
3x + 1.5 > 4.5
5y - 3 > 4.5
-5y + 2 > 8.5
-9y - 3.5 > 1
