Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you have an example? they are just like equations but with a slight hiccup in them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when we multiply or divide them by a negative number; we need to reverse the symbol, and heres why 5 > 3 ; multiply both sides by 1 5 > 3 is false; so we flip the symbol to account for it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then do that with this :) p > 3 is the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1your are right about that :) divide both sides by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12y has a 2 stuck to it right? its is multiplied right on there..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how do we undo multiplication?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then to unstick it; we divide by 2 right :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes .... but we have the hiccup here... we had to multiply or divide the y by a negative number... right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do you mean by hiccup

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i mean that they dont tell you this little fact when you do equations because its redundant..... but whenever you have to multiply the variable by a negative number; ALWAYS flip your sign around..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1an = sign flip around looks like = so its a step they omit to tell you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1> flips around to be < < flips around to be > = flips around to be =

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alternatively you can just swap the left and right sides by adding.. 2y < 10 +2y  10 + 2y  10 ============== 10 < 2y Then do the division normally.
