Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I know, but doing it the way I suggested avoids the ridiculous habit of needed to flip the inequality.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It is not necessary to perform operations that require flipping the inequality. The entire idea of doing it disgusts me. It's one of the reasons so many students get math problems like these wrong.
