transitive property of inequality

Work Step by Step

The transitive property of inequality tells us that inequality "transfers down the line". A chain of inequalities is like an ordered list. If the first item is smaller than the second item in the list, then it is smaller than every other item in the list. For example, if Train A leaves the station before train B, and Train B leaves the station before Train C, it is true that Train A leaves before Train C.
