Why does the inequality sign change when both sides are multiplied or divided by a negative numbe?

Just think about it--say you had two numbers....5 and 7. 7 is greater than five, obviously. But if you divide both numbers by -1, you get -5 and -7. -7 is less than -5. Basically, with positive numbers, the farthest the number is from zero (the bigger its absolute value) the greater it is. But with negatives, the closest it is to zero (or the smallest its absolute value) the greater it is. So if you divide by -1 the absolute value stays the same while the sign changes, as does the relation between the two numbers. The same applies when one number is negative and the other positive, or if your dividing by a number greater than one or less than one. Dividing by a negative always changes the sign. Hope this helps/

Is positive five greater than negative five?

Yes. Write the number line horizontally with the negative numbers to the left, zero in the middle and positive numbers to the right, then the further right a number is, the greater it is; so with two numbers the number further right on the line is the greater of the two: Positive five is to the right of negative five, therefore it is greater than negative five, ie +5 > -5
