Solve each of the following inequalities for the given variable. Represent your solutions on a number line.
When you divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number,
it reverses or 'flips' the sign. Here is an example of why that works:
multiply both sides by
statement is no longer true
reverse the inequality sign to make it true
This also works with division by a negative number.
to both sides.
Divide both sides by
Did you remember to reverse the inequality sign?
