This task provides a way to see if students understand the meaning of a solution to an inequality (or equation), namely values of the variables that make the inequality (equation) true. Often students see solutions only as the result of solving an inequality or equation. This idea is an important one, since for some equations it is possible to check if a given number is a solution, while it would be hard or impossible to solve, e.g. higher degree polynomials, equations involving trigonometric or exponential functions.
