The research objective was to describe the students’ understanding on the linear equation and inequalities related to factual, conceptual and procedural knowledge. This study was qualitative. The focus of the research is to describe the students’ understanding of factual knowledge, conceptual and procedural.The main instrument was the researcher itself, and other instruments were a diagnostic test to determine the subject and diagnose the types of students’ understanding, and interview guideline. The subjects of this research were three students of grade VIII junior High School in Bone who were selected based on the diagnostic test results with high, medium, and low criteria. The results showed: (1) The students’ understanding of factual knowledge on linear equation and inequalities in one variable was able from one form into another form that can be viewed from the chosen three subjects that can mention the given coefficients, variables, and constants, can express the equation became an open sentence or otherwise can express a sentence became equation. (2)The students’ understanding of conceptual knowledge on linear equation and inequalities in one variable was able to change from one form into another form and find an example or illustration of the concept or principle. Whereas the understanding of conceptual knowledge was able to determines something that belongs to a category and only be done by the high subject and moderate subject. (3) The students’ understanding of procedural knowledge on linear equation and inequalities in one variable was able to change from one form into another form and determine something in a category can only be done by the high subject and moderate subject.
