Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Step 1: expanse the expression 6x8 6x(7p) < 48 48 + 42p < 48 step 2: add both side of inequation by 48 to keep the term with p by it self it gives : 42p < 0 Step 3: divide both side by 42 get: p < 0. Note: when we do division or multiplication to a negative number ( <0). The direction of inequation has to be reversed. Look at this example : 1 < 2 is a true statement now multiply both side by a negative number, let say 2 LHS become : (2)*1 = 2 and RHS become : (2)*2 = 4. clearly 2 > 4, which is why when multiply(or devide) by a negative number, the direction of inequation has to be reversed.
