 Solving an Inequality:  Finding all the values of the variable(s) that make the inequality true.

For example:

If you are given the inequality m + 5 < 8, and you subtract 5 from both sides of the inequality to find that m < 3 is the solution, then you solved the inequality.

If you are given the inequality 2t - 3 > 7, and you add 3 to both sides of the inequality and then divide both sides of the inequality by 2 to find that t > 5 is the solution, then you solved the inequality.
