In this instructional task students are given two inequalities, one as a formula and one in words, and a set of possible solutions. They have to decide which of the given numbers actually solve the inequalities. There are two solutions presented, the first is the more natural one, where we simply substitute the given values and check if the inequality is satisfied. In the second solution, we actually solve the inequality first and then see if the given values are in the solution set.
