    -x > 3 You want x but you have -x, so you need to multiply both sides by -1. You must be careful with an inequality bec when you multiply or divide both sides by a negative number, the direction of the inequality sign changes.

    @mathstudent55 , @Brittni0605 maybe you both could help me with this: Which of the following is not a way to represent the solution of the inequality 2(x + 1) greater than or equal to 20? A x _>__9 B 9 _<__ x C A number line with a closed circle on 9 and shading to the left. D A number line with a closed circle on 9 and shading to the right.
