\[-3s \ge 18\] Divide both sides by -3 (so flip inequality): \[s\le -6\] He needs to remember to flip the inequality sign whenever he multiplies/divides by a negative number.
s has to be smaller than -6. like -7 is smaller than -6. Rest is correct.
ok. Thanks

@cgliss if you want to explain to him why this happens, give him the example of -1<5. If you multiply both sides by -1 without swapping the inequality sign around, you get 1<-5. This doesn't make sense, so you have to flip it to 1>-5.
great example.....thanks
