    +ve times +ve = +ve +ve times -ve = -ve -ve times -ve = +ve Same holds for division.

    \[\frac{3x}{4} ≥-6\]\[\frac{4}{3}\times\frac{3x}{4} ≥-6\times \frac{4}{3}\]Simplify the left and right side.

    If you don't understand / can't handle this, just use the first method I told you: 1. Multiply both sides by 4 2. Divide both sides by 3
