The inequality sign becomes greater than (>).
When one side of the inequality is divided or multiplied by a negative number.
When an inequality is multiplied or divided by a negative number the inequality sign is reversed.Example : -x < 7 ......after multiplying by (say) -2 this becomes 2x > -14
When an Inequality expression is multiplied (or divided) by a negative number then the Inequality sign is reversed. Example : -9x < 18 : -x < 2 : x > -2........as both sides have been multiplied by -1.
When the two sides of the inequality are multiplied or divided by a negative number or term or expression.
When a side is multiplied or divided by a negative number.
yes it does
The direction of the inequality is reversed. Note that the if the inequality included "or equals" before, then it will after. 4 < 5 multiplied by -1 gives -4 > -5 5 >= 4 multiplied by -1 gives -5 <= -4
If two sides of an inequality are multiplied (or divided) by a negative number, you have to invert the sign. For example, a "less-than" sign becomes a "greater-than" sign.
The inequality symbol doesn't change direction in this case.Note that that is the same as adding a positive number.Note also that if you MULTIPLY or DIVIDE by a negative number, then you need to change the direction of the inequality symbol.
Nothing, you proceed as if the < or > was an =. If you're multiplying or dividing both sides by a negative, you flip the sign. e.g. < would go to >
If an inequality is multiplied or divided by a negative number then the inequality sign is switched. For example, -2x > 4 then -2x/-2 > 4/-2 then x < -2.
In the case of an inequality, if you mulitply by a negative number, you have to reverse the direction of the inequality. E.g.: -x < 10 becomes: x > -10 (Here, I multiplied by -1, and simultaneously reversed the direction of the inequality.)
The negative number multiplied by one, the answer stays the same. for example -52 x 1 = -52
No No. Positive number multiplied by a negative number gives a negative number.
A negative number multiplied by another negative number equals a positive number. For example, -5 · -5 = positive 25.
No, you only flip the inequality sign if you are dividing by a negative number on both sides of the inequality
The rules for dividing negative numbers is the same as multiplying them. A negative number multiplied/divided by a negative number is positive and a negative number multiplied/divided by a positive number is negative.
The direction of the inequality remains unchanged. The direction changes when you divide or multiply both sides by a negative number. It also changes if both sides are raised to a negative exponent.
-x > a iff** x < -a This is easy to see intuitively by coloring a number line. ** "if and only if"
