If these 2 equations are equivalent:

x > 2y+1 and (x-1)/2 < y,

what is the equivalent equation for:

x [itex]\geq[/itex] 2y+1 ?

I think your first 2 equivalencies are wrong.... x > 2y+1 should be equal to (x-1)/2 > y

and I believe there should be a similar result for your second equation

xeon123 and repliers,

those are not "equations."

Please use the correct term(s).

They are inequations or inequalities.
