because if you multiply 8 by -3…for example…and it was greater than the other side, it has suddenly "flipped" to the other side of zero. Make sense?
its an identity -4 < 5 yes? multiply both by -1
and 4 > -5
yea sorta but how does that aply to evry inequality

if while simplifying one you end up with a negative variable between two values, to remove the negative you multiply all by -1 ( and switch the inequalities )
ok. so if you have a positive number, and multiply it by a negative number, it is now negative/on the other side of zero. if you have a negative number and multiply it by another negative, it becomes positive,ending on the opposite side of zero that it was originally.
