inequality

Definitions:

  • None
  • The condition of being unequal.
  • An instance of being unequal.
  • None
  • Lack of equality, as of opportunity, treatment, or status.
  • Social or economic disparity.
  • Lack of smoothness or regularity; unevenness.
  • Variability; changeability.
  • An algebraic relation showing that a quantity is greater than or less than another quantity.
  • A deviation from uniformity in the apparent motion of a celestial body.
  • Lack of equality in character or attributes; unlikeness between things of the same kind; diversity; disparity: as, <em>inequality</em> in size, numbers, etc.; the <em>inequality</em> of the fingers.
  • Lack of equality in the state or condition of a person or thing; want of uniformity of relation, level, surface, etc.; variation or variable ness; unevenness: as, <em>inequalities</em> of temper; <em>inequalities</em> of rank or fortune; <em>inequalities</em> of the earth's surface.
  • Injustice; partiality.
  • In <em>astronomy</em>, the deviation in the motion of a planet or satellite from its uniform mean mo tion.
  • In <em>algebra</em>, an expression of two unequal quantities connected by either of the signs of inequality ⟩ or ⟨; thus, <em>a</em> ⟩ <em>b</em>, signifying that <em>a</em> is greater than <em>b</em>, and <em>a</em> ⟨ <em>b</em>, signifying that <em>a</em> is less than <em>b</em>, are <em>inequalities.</em>
  • The quality of being unequal; difference, or lack of equality, in any respect; lack of uniformity; disproportion; unevenness; disparity; diversity
  • Unevenness; lack of levelness; the alternate rising and falling of a surface
  • Variableness; changeableness; inconstancy; lack of smoothness or equability; deviation; unsteadiness, as of the weather, feelings, etc.
  • Disproportion to any office or purpose; inadequacy; competency.
  • An expression consisting of two unequal quantities, with the sign of inequality (> or <) between them.
  • An irregularity, or a deviation, in the motion of a planet or satellite from its uniform mean motion; the amount of such deviation.
  • An <xref>unfair</xref>, not <xref>equal</xref>, state.
  • A statement that of two quantities one is specifically <xref>less</xref> than (or <xref>greater</xref> than) another. Symbol: < or ≤ or > or ≥, as appropriate.
  • lack of equality
