## Algebra 1

Isolate the variable on one side of the inequality to find the solution. $0.5\gt\frac{1}{2}c\longrightarrow$ multiply each side by 2 $0.5\times2\gt\frac{1}{2}c\times2\longrightarrow$ multiply $1\gt c$ 1 is the endpoint but is not part of the solution set since the inequality does not include "or equal to." Any other number that is less than 1 is part of the solution set.
