00:00:01.160 --> 00:00:04.920
In today’s lesson, what we’re gonna be looking at is inequalities on a number line.
00:00:06.960 --> 00:00:10.640
And an inequality is something that is not equal to something else.
00:00:11.400 --> 00:00:14.720
So, we deal with them often in the same way that we deal with an equation.
00:00:16.600 --> 00:00:18.200
It’s just that we use some different notation.
00:00:18.880 --> 00:00:22.760
We can see some of that here because, as you can see, there’s quite a lot of strange notation on this page.
00:00:24.840 --> 00:00:27.920
So I think the first thing we need to do is work out what some of these symbols mean.
00:00:29.680 --> 00:00:32.000
So first of all, what we have is our inequality notation.
00:00:32.800 --> 00:00:36.240
So, we’re gonna start with 𝑥 is greater than 𝑦.
00:00:36.240 --> 00:00:40.800
And we know that this is 𝑥 is greater than 𝑦 because we got the wide end of our inequality sign by the 𝑥 and the pointy end by the 𝑦.
00:00:41.280 --> 00:00:49.040
And then, we have 𝑥 is less than 𝑦, and we can see that because we got the inequality sign which is switched around.
00:00:49.640 --> 00:00:55.600
So, we’ve got the pointy end towards the 𝑥 and the wide end towards the 𝑦.
00:00:55.600 --> 00:00:58.440
And then, we have 𝑥 is greater than or equal to 𝑦.
00:00:58.840 --> 00:01:03.920
And we can see here we’ve got the inequality sign which is the same; however, we have this line underneath.
00:01:04.280 --> 00:01:06.480
And this line is what tells us that it’s all equal to.
00:01:06.480 --> 00:01:12.160
So, as well as 𝑥 being greater than 𝑦, it could be equal to 𝑦 as well.
00:01:14.280 --> 00:01:18.160
And then, similarly, we have 𝑥 is less than or equal to 𝑦.
00:01:18.160 --> 00:01:18.680
Okay, great.
00:01:18.680 --> 00:01:20.640
So, this is our inequality notation.
00:01:21.480 --> 00:01:31.640
So, let’s have a look in practice what they mean, and, in particular, what the difference between less than or greater than or greater than or equal to or less than or equal to is.
00:01:33.640 --> 00:01:37.760
Well, let’s have a look at 𝑥 is greater than three and 𝑥 is greater than or equal to three.
00:01:38.640 --> 00:01:44.040
Now, if we have 𝑥 is greater than three, this means that 𝑥 can take any value greater than three whatsoever.
00:01:44.040 --> 00:01:49.920
So, it means it could be anything that’s even a slight decimal or fraction above three.
00:01:52.280 --> 00:01:57.160
However, often in questions where we’re looking at inequalities, it asks us to deal in integer values.
00:01:57.800 --> 00:02:09.240
So, if we were told to find all the integer values that 𝑥 could represent, then 𝑥 could represent anything from four, five, six, seven onwards because it’s anything greater than three, but not including three.
00:02:11.480 --> 00:02:13.840
Now, if we move over to 𝑥 is greater than or equal to three.
00:02:14.560 --> 00:02:17.760
Once again, it means that 𝑥 could be greater than three.
00:02:18.200 --> 00:02:22.200
So, it can be any value, any decimal or fractional value, greater than three.
00:02:22.600 --> 00:02:24.240
But it could also be three itself.
00:02:26.280 --> 00:02:32.320
But once again, if we were dealing with a question that was asking for all the integer values of 𝑥.
00:02:32.320 --> 00:02:42.440
Then this time we could have 𝑥 being equal to three, four, five, six, et cetera, with the difference being that 𝑥 this time could represent three itself.
00:02:43.200 --> 00:02:43.720
Okay, great.
00:02:44.160 --> 00:02:45.480
So, that’s our inequality notation.
00:02:46.280 --> 00:02:48.440
But there’s another part of notation that we need to look at as well.
00:02:48.880 --> 00:02:50.200
And that’s our number-line notation.
00:02:51.840 --> 00:02:57.400
So, first of all, what we can see is an open circle with a line pointing to the right, and what this means is greater than.
00:02:57.960 --> 00:03:04.480
And that’s because if we move right or up a number line, then we get into greater values.
00:03:04.480 --> 00:03:11.520
And then, what we have is a circle, an open circle here, with the line to the left or an arrow to the left, and what this means is less than.
00:03:12.200 --> 00:03:17.720
And that’s because if you have a number line and we’re going left or down a number line, then it means the values are gonna be less.
00:03:20.000 --> 00:03:24.640
Then, we’ve got a colored-in circle and a line going to the right, and this is an arrow going to the right.
00:03:25.280 --> 00:03:28.320
What this means is greater than or equal to.
00:03:30.520 --> 00:03:33.400
And what makes it or equal to is the fact that our circle is colored in.
00:03:35.400 --> 00:03:38.400
And then, we have a colored-in circle and an arrow going to the left.
00:03:38.800 --> 00:03:43.280
And what this means is less than or equal to, following the same reason as the one before.
00:03:45.160 --> 00:03:52.280
So, great, now that we’ve got the notation and we’ve seen what it means, what we can do is move on to some examples to see how we could use it in practice.
00:03:55.520 --> 00:04:00.760
Which part of the shown line represents the set of solutions to the inequality 𝑥 is less than 27?
00:04:02.720 --> 00:04:06.360
So, as in the question, we can see that we’ve got 𝑥 and then we’ve got an inequality sign.
00:04:06.720 --> 00:04:07.560
Then, we’ve got 27.
00:04:08.120 --> 00:04:12.080
And that inequality sign has the pointy end towards the 𝑥 and the wide end towards the 27.
00:04:12.560 --> 00:04:13.920
So, what this means is less than.
00:04:14.120 --> 00:04:16.120
So, we could say that 𝑥 is less than 27.
00:04:17.960 --> 00:04:21.320
So, therefore, what we’re looking for is the region to the left of 27.
00:04:22.000 --> 00:04:26.400
Because if we’ve got a number line, we know that anything to the left is down the number line.
00:04:26.400 --> 00:04:28.200
So, it’s gonna be less than the value that we’ve got.
00:04:30.360 --> 00:04:33.800
So, therefore, we can see that our possible values of 𝑥 are gonna be represented by A.
00:04:35.560 --> 00:04:42.040
So, therefore, we can say the part of the shown line which represents the set of solutions to the inequality 𝑥 is less than 27 is part A.
00:04:44.600 --> 00:04:48.760
Because, in fact, part B would represent 𝑥 is greater than 27.
00:04:49.200 --> 00:04:50.920
And that’s because it’s to the right of the 27.
00:04:51.280 --> 00:04:54.080
So, therefore, it’s all the values that are more than or greater than 27.
00:04:56.840 --> 00:04:57.440
Okay, great.
00:04:57.440 --> 00:05:00.640
So, our first example allowed us to interpret some inequalities.
00:05:01.240 --> 00:05:05.960
Now, what we’re gonna look at is a second example, where we’re actually going to start to use some of our number-line notation.
00:05:09.080 --> 00:05:11.720
Which inequality is represented on this number line?
00:05:13.640 --> 00:05:17.360
So, first of all, what we can see on our number line is we’ve got an arrow pointing to right.
00:05:17.360 --> 00:05:19.520
So, this means that we’re gonna be involving greater than.
00:05:20.080 --> 00:05:24.000
That’s because anything to the right of a value on a number line is greater than that value.
00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:29.000
Then, next, what we do is we remind ourselves of our number-line notation.
00:05:29.680 --> 00:05:33.280
And with our number-line notation, if we have an open circle and a line to the right, it’s greater than.
00:05:33.840 --> 00:05:39.200
But if we have a closed or colored-in circle and a line to the right or an arrow to the right, then it is greater than or equal to.
00:05:41.200 --> 00:05:43.680
And we can see in our diagram that it is colored in.
00:05:43.680 --> 00:05:45.560
So, therefore, it’s gonna be greater than or equal to.
00:05:47.720 --> 00:05:54.280
So, what this means is, if we’ve got the colored-in dot, like we do in ours, then it’s gonna be greater than or equal to.
00:05:54.760 --> 00:06:01.240
So, it means it can take the value, so in this case, the value of the negative one cause if it was an open circle, it wouldn’t take this value as well.
00:06:02.040 --> 00:06:06.840
So, therefore, in word form, we can say that 𝑥 is greater than or equal to negative one.
00:06:07.640 --> 00:06:10.280
However, we want to represent it using inequality notation.
00:06:10.800 --> 00:06:12.040
So, how would we do this?
00:06:13.760 --> 00:06:17.240
So, using our inequality notation, we have 𝑥 is greater than or equal to negative one.
00:06:18.120 --> 00:06:23.960
And we know it’s greater than because we’ve got the open side by the 𝑥 and the pointy side by the negative one.
00:06:23.960 --> 00:06:25.840
So, it’s 𝑥 is greater than negative one.
00:06:28.360 --> 00:06:32.040
And we know that it’s or equal to because this line underneath our inequality sign.
00:06:32.520 --> 00:06:34.880
So, we’ve got 𝑥 is greater than or equal to negative one.
00:06:36.760 --> 00:06:37.280
Okay, fab.
00:06:37.280 --> 00:06:43.280
So, we’ve now looked at inequality notation, number-line notation, and how we use them in practice.
00:06:43.880 --> 00:06:51.120
So, now, what we’re gonna do is have a look at a little bit more notation which brings together our inequality notation and our number-line notation, but in a slightly different way.
00:06:53.200 --> 00:06:56.840
So, what we’re gonna have a look at here, first of all, is the double-sided inequality.
00:06:58.800 --> 00:07:01.280
So, as you can see, we’ve got two inequality signs.
00:07:02.000 --> 00:07:03.600
And we’ve got 𝑥 in the middle.
00:07:04.560 --> 00:07:09.160
And what this tells us is that 𝑥 is greater than 𝑦, but less than 𝑧.
00:07:11.560 --> 00:07:20.880
So, what this tells us is that 𝑥 is between 𝑦 and 𝑧, but it doesn’t include 𝑦 or 𝑧.
00:07:20.880 --> 00:07:26.120
And, in fact, what our double-sided inequality is, it’s just a combination of two simple inequalities.
00:07:26.800 --> 00:07:31.680
It’s the combination of 𝑥 is greater than 𝑦 and 𝑥 is less than 𝑧.
00:07:32.400 --> 00:07:36.200
So, we’ve got two conditions here that we’ve represented in our one inequality.
00:07:38.480 --> 00:07:49.640
And if we were to represent this on a number line, the notation we would use for our number-line notation would be an open circle at each end of our line, so an open circle on 𝑦 and an open circle on 𝑧.
00:07:49.640 --> 00:07:53.240
And then, we would have a line between them that would join them.
00:07:53.760 --> 00:08:01.160
And what this would tell us is that our 𝑥 could take any value between 𝑦 and 𝑧, but not including 𝑦 and 𝑧, because we haven’t colored in the circles.
00:08:03.120 --> 00:08:09.960
And as with the inequality notation that we’ve used previously, we could also include the inequality notation which could also mean or equal to.
00:08:12.040 --> 00:08:17.120
So, what this would mean would be 𝑥 is greater than or equal to 𝑦, but less than or equal to 𝑧.
00:08:17.800 --> 00:08:21.480
And once again, it’s just a combination of two more simple inequalities.
00:08:21.880 --> 00:08:26.640
So, for example, 𝑥 is greater than or equal to 𝑦 and 𝑥 is less than or equal to 𝑧.
00:08:28.840 --> 00:08:39.480
And once again, if we want to also demonstrate our number-line notation, what we’d have this time would be a colored-in dot above our 𝑦, and then a line, and then a colored-in dot or circle above our 𝑧.
00:08:40.200 --> 00:08:41.480
And these are joined together by the line.
00:08:42.440 --> 00:08:49.480
And we can see here that this would be all the values that 𝑥 could take, and they’d be all values between 𝑦 and 𝑧, but also including 𝑦 and 𝑧.
00:08:49.680 --> 00:08:51.440
And that’s because the circles are colored in.
00:08:52.240 --> 00:08:52.640
Okay, great.
00:08:52.960 --> 00:08:54.360
So, now, we’ve seen this other notation.
00:08:54.840 --> 00:08:57.640
Let’s move on to an example where we can also see this used.
00:09:01.680 --> 00:09:04.600
Which of the following inequalities have been represented on the number line?
00:09:05.400 --> 00:09:09.400
We’ve got (A) 𝑥 is less than or equal to negative one or 𝑥 is greater than two.
00:09:09.800 --> 00:09:12.760
(B) 𝑥 is less than negative one or 𝑥 is greater than two.
00:09:13.200 --> 00:09:16.600
(C) 𝑥 is less than or equal to negative one and 𝑥 is greater than two.
00:09:17.200 --> 00:09:20.520
Or (D) 𝑥 is greater than or equal to negative one but less than two.
00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:24.600
Or (E) 𝑥 is greater than negative one but less than two.
00:09:26.840 --> 00:09:31.400
So, first of all, what we can see is that our inequality on a number line has two regions.
00:09:32.080 --> 00:09:34.000
So, we have the region on the left and the region on the right.
00:09:34.640 --> 00:09:36.280
So, first of all, we’re gonna have a look at the region on the left.
00:09:38.000 --> 00:09:40.840
Well, the region on the left, we can see that we’ve got an arrow pointing to the left.
00:09:41.440 --> 00:09:45.800
And what this means is less that because it means anything less than a value cause it’s moving down the number line.
00:09:47.680 --> 00:09:52.800
And then, we can quickly remind ourselves of the number-line notation because we’ve got a colored-in dot.
00:09:52.800 --> 00:09:58.680
So, what this means is it’s going to be greater or less than or equal to because an open dot would mean just greater or less than.
00:10:00.480 --> 00:10:05.960
So, therefore, we can say that the left-hand part of our inequality on our number line is represented by 𝑥 is less than or equal to negative one.
00:10:06.400 --> 00:10:10.920
That’s cause our colored-in circle or dot is on negative one, and then we’ve got an arrow to the left.
00:10:13.120 --> 00:10:16.640
So, then, if we take a look at the right-hand side, then what we’ve got is an open circle.
00:10:17.400 --> 00:10:20.800
So, this means that it’s gonna be greater or less than, that it’s not gonna be or equal to.
00:10:21.520 --> 00:10:23.680
And then, we’ve got an arrow to the right, which means greater than.
00:10:25.720 --> 00:10:31.320
So, therefore, the right-hand side of our inequality on the number line is represented by 𝑥 is greater than two.
00:10:31.320 --> 00:10:31.880
Okay, so great.
00:10:32.120 --> 00:10:42.480
So now, let’s give our final answer, where we can say that 𝑥 is less than or equal to negative one or 𝑥 is greater than two.
00:10:44.160 --> 00:10:52.280
And it’s this word “or” which is key because it’s telling us that 𝑥 can be less than or equal to negative one or 𝑥 can be greater than two.
00:10:52.760 --> 00:10:59.960
It cannot be and because you cannot have a value that is less than or equal to negative one and greater than two.
00:11:02.040 --> 00:11:03.840
That’s why answer (C) would be ruled out.
00:11:04.040 --> 00:11:10.840
Because here you can see clearly that the word “and” is used; however, what we want is the word “or” to be used.
00:11:11.240 --> 00:11:18.240
So, therefore, the correct answer would be answer (A), as this is the inequality that’s been represented on our number line.
00:11:19.560 --> 00:11:20.520
Okay, great.
00:11:21.120 --> 00:11:27.320
So, now, let’s have a quick look at the other answers that we’ve been given and why they may be misconceptions and why they’re incorrect.
00:11:29.560 --> 00:11:39.920
Well, if we take a look at answer (B), the reason answer (B) is incorrect — and this is a common mistake — is that if we look at the first inequality notation, we haven’t got a line underneath our inequality.
00:11:40.480 --> 00:11:43.160
Which means, therefore, that it’ll just be 𝑥 is less than negative one.
00:11:43.400 --> 00:11:48.120
Well, if it was 𝑥 is less than negative one, we’d have an open circle on the negative one.
00:11:48.120 --> 00:11:51.400
But, in fact, we’ve got a colored-in or closed circle there.
00:11:51.720 --> 00:11:53.880
So, therefore, it’s less than or equal to.
00:11:56.440 --> 00:12:02.880
And if we look at (D) and (E), these both are incorrect because (D) and (E) are both — we’ve got here double inequalities.
00:12:03.440 --> 00:12:07.160
And what these would mean is we’d actually have a region between two values.
00:12:09.000 --> 00:12:12.280
And the way we’d represent these on a number line is by using two other bits of notation.
00:12:12.880 --> 00:12:19.600
So, for instance, if we had (D), this would be a colored-in dot above our negative one or on our negative one.
00:12:19.880 --> 00:12:21.680
And then, we’d have an open circle or dot on our two.
00:12:21.960 --> 00:12:25.760
And then, we’d have a line joining between them.
00:12:25.760 --> 00:12:33.280
And what this would mean is that 𝑥 could take any value that was between negative one and two, but also including negative one, but not including two.
00:12:35.520 --> 00:12:41.240
And for (E), we’d just have an open circle on negative one and an open circle on two and then a line joining them.
00:12:45.680 --> 00:12:46.120
Okay, great.
00:12:46.120 --> 00:12:51.600
So, we answered the question here that has shown where we’ve got two different conditions that need to be met.
00:12:51.600 --> 00:12:55.000
And also, again, we’ve looked at a bit of double inequalities.
00:12:55.280 --> 00:12:59.520
But now, we’re gonna have a look at a question that definitely focuses on that double inequality.
00:13:02.280 --> 00:13:07.600
Which of the following diagrams represents the inequality 𝑥 is greater than or equal to negative two but less than one?
00:13:09.520 --> 00:13:16.080
So, if we take a look at the inequality we have in this question, we can see that it’s a double inequality because we’ve got two inequality signs.
00:13:18.200 --> 00:13:24.480
And that is, it is an amalgamation of the two inequalities 𝑥 is greater than or equal to negative two and 𝑥 is less than one.
00:13:25.360 --> 00:13:28.360
And what this is gonna show is a region between two values.
00:13:30.120 --> 00:13:35.160
So, if we’re gonna want to represent this on a number line, what we need to do is remind ourselves of some of the notation we use.
00:13:35.920 --> 00:13:40.640
So, if we take a look at the first inequality sign, we’ve got 𝑥 is greater than or equal to negative two.
00:13:40.960 --> 00:13:49.800
So, therefore, because it’s greater than or equal to, we’re gonna have a colored-in circle or dot in the line to the right because the colored-in circle or dot means or equal to rather than just that value.
00:13:50.400 --> 00:13:52.280
And then, the line to the right is gonna be greater than.
00:13:54.360 --> 00:13:56.960
Then, for the second part of our inequality, we’re gonna have an open circle.
00:13:57.480 --> 00:13:59.440
And that’s because it’s just 𝑥 is less than one.
00:13:59.440 --> 00:14:01.040
It’s not 𝑥 is less than or equal to one.
00:14:01.600 --> 00:14:04.080
And then we’re gonna have a line going off to the left because it’s less than.
00:14:06.160 --> 00:14:08.480
As we’d already said, this is a double inequality.
00:14:08.480 --> 00:14:10.960
So, it represent a region between two values.
00:14:11.400 --> 00:14:15.040
So, therefore, we’re gonna join the lines between our two dots or circles.
00:14:15.680 --> 00:14:17.960
So, now, we’ve got something that looks like what we want.
00:14:18.160 --> 00:14:20.360
Well, we’re gonna represent our inequality on a number line.
00:14:22.320 --> 00:14:26.280
And we can also see that our colored circle is gonna be on the negative two.
00:14:26.800 --> 00:14:28.360
And the open circle is gonna be on the one.
00:14:28.760 --> 00:14:32.320
So, if we take a look at our possible answers, we can see that this is the same as answer (A).
00:14:34.480 --> 00:14:38.880
Because in answer (A), we have a colored-in circle on the negative two and an open circle on the one.
00:14:39.400 --> 00:14:49.720
So, what this shows is that 𝑥 can be any value between negative two and one which includes negative two, but doesn’t include one.
00:14:49.720 --> 00:14:56.320
So, therefore, we can say that the diagram which represents the inequality 𝑥 is greater than or equal to negative two but less than one is diagram (A).
00:14:59.360 --> 00:15:03.280
And the other ones are incorrect for various reasons involving the number-line notation.
00:15:03.760 --> 00:15:08.680
So, (B) has the incorrect dot colored in and the incorrect dot open.
00:15:08.680 --> 00:15:13.800
In (C), they’re both colored in, and in (D), they’re both open, which will be all incorrect.
00:15:15.000 --> 00:15:15.480
Okay, great.
00:15:15.480 --> 00:15:18.160
So, we’ve now looked at a problem that has a double inequality.
00:15:18.720 --> 00:15:20.280
Now, we’re gonna move on to our final example.
00:15:20.560 --> 00:15:22.320
And this is one that’s using a bit of problem solving.
00:15:24.760 --> 00:15:33.880
The situation where 𝑥 has to be at least two away from one can be expressed by the compound inequality 𝑥 minus one is less than negative two or 𝑥 minus one is greater than two.
00:15:34.640 --> 00:15:37.120
Which of the following number lines represents this inequality?
00:15:39.000 --> 00:15:42.760
Well, the first thing we need to look at with this question is this wording here, compound inequality.
00:15:43.360 --> 00:15:44.760
Well, what is a compound inequality?
00:15:45.240 --> 00:15:54.040
Well, it’s an inequality that has two or more inequalities joined together with either “and” or “or,” like we have here in this question.
00:15:55.720 --> 00:15:58.360
So, in this problem, our compound inequality has two parts.
00:15:58.840 --> 00:16:02.680
So, we deal with the left-hand part first, which is 𝑥 minus one is less than negative two.
00:16:04.280 --> 00:16:07.600
Well, what we want to do is we want to solve this in the same way that we’d solve an equation.
00:16:08.120 --> 00:16:10.120
So, we’re gonna add one to each side of our inequality.
00:16:11.760 --> 00:16:14.280
So, this is gonna give us 𝑥 is less than negative one.
00:16:14.840 --> 00:16:18.120
Okay, so, that’s the first part of our compound inequality solved.
00:16:18.400 --> 00:16:23.840
So, we know what our 𝑥-value or our 𝑥-region is gonna be first, and that is 𝑥 less than negative one.
00:16:25.560 --> 00:16:29.480
So, for the second part of our compound inequality, we have 𝑥 minus one is greater than two.
00:16:31.800 --> 00:16:34.760
So, again, once more, what we do is we add one to each side of the inequality to solve.
00:16:34.960 --> 00:16:36.360
So, we get 𝑥 is greater than three.
00:16:37.960 --> 00:16:42.480
So, if we put that together, what we get is that 𝑥 is less than negative one or 𝑥 is greater than three.
00:16:42.880 --> 00:16:46.320
It’s not a double inequality because we’re not looking for a region between two values.
00:16:46.800 --> 00:16:50.000
So, we’ve actually got two separate parts to our compound inequality.
00:16:51.920 --> 00:16:57.240
And if we think about our number-line inequality, we’re gonna have two open circles and one with an arrow to the left and one with an arrow to the right.
00:16:57.240 --> 00:16:59.040
And this is because we haven’t got or equal to.
00:17:00.760 --> 00:17:05.040
So, therefore, if we look at our possible answers, we can see that answer (D) is gonna be the correct one.
00:17:05.320 --> 00:17:08.520
Because we’ve got an open circle in the line to the left at negative one.
00:17:08.960 --> 00:17:11.480
And we’ve got an open circle on the line to the right at three.
00:17:13.120 --> 00:17:20.560
And we rule out answer (A) because it’s got two closed circles and answers (B) and (C) because they represent regions between two values.
00:17:22.440 --> 00:17:22.880
Okay, great.
00:17:22.880 --> 00:17:24.120
So, we’ve answered our final problem.
00:17:24.560 --> 00:17:27.200
Let’s have a look at a quick roundup of what we’ve done in this lesson.
00:17:28.280 --> 00:17:30.040
So, the key points we have are notation.
00:17:30.240 --> 00:17:31.720
So that’s what our inequality notation.
00:17:31.920 --> 00:17:34.640
If it’s a wide end pointing towards it, then it’s greater than.
00:17:34.960 --> 00:17:36.560
If it’s a pointy end, then it’s less than.
00:17:37.000 --> 00:17:41.040
And if we have a line underneath, that means it can be or equal to, so it can include that value as well.
00:17:41.760 --> 00:17:46.360
With our number-line notation, if it’s a colored-in dot, this means or equal to as well as greater or less than.
00:17:47.160 --> 00:17:51.320
And, finally, if we have double inequalities, these show a region between two different values.
00:17:51.600 --> 00:17:58.240
And, finally, we can say that a compound inequality is an inequality with two or more inequalities with an “and” or “or” between them.
