Algebra Applications: Inequalities, Segment 1: Hybrid Cars.
With the increasing demand worldwide for cars, the cost of gasoline continues to rise. The need for fuel-efficient cars makes hybrids a current favorite. An examination of the equations and inequalities that involve miles per gallon (mpg) for city and highway traffic reveals important information about hybrid cars and those with gasoline-powered engines. Students use the Graphs and Geometry features of the TI-Nspire.
