I want to decompose Fourier-Motzkin algorithm for educational reasons. Suppose I have

z_3=solve(12*x_2 <= 72,x_2)[0][0]
z_4=solve(1-1*x_2 <= 40,x_2)[0][0]
show(z_1,",   ",z_2,",   ",z_3,",   ",z_4)

How coud I select the z_i according to the inequality sign and construct 2 sets.

Your data give:

sage: z_1                                                                                                                                                                                                    
x_2 <= 25
sage: z_2                                                                                                                                                                                                    
x_2 >= (3/35)

You can look at the operator of the symbolic expression as follows:

sage: z_1.operator()                                                                                                                                                                                         
<built-in function le>
sage: z_2.operator()                                                                                                                                                                                         
<built-in function ge>

You can recognize which operator it is as follows:

sage: z_1.operator() is operator.le                                                                                                                                                                          
sage: z_1.operator() is                                                                                                                                                                          
sage: z_2.operator() is operator.le                                                                                                                                                                          
sage: z_2.operator() is                                                                                                                                                                          

le stands for "less or equal than" and ge stands for "greater or equal than".
