# Common Core Math: High School Algebra: Reasoning with Equations & Inequalities

Equations and inequalities are two key types of mathematical statements: an equation uses the = symbol to connect two equal expressions, while an inequality describes a relationship between expressions using the symbols <, >, ≤ or ≥. In high school, students represent and analyze equations and inequalities in a variety of ways. In particular, students solve equations and inequalities algebraically by performing operations that isolate the desired variable. Students also analyze and solve equations and inequalities by graphing their solutions. Students solve sets of multiple equations or inequalities, called "systems," using algebraic and graphical methods and, at advanced levels, matrices.
