2. OpenSessame

Alright so you have to solve -x<3

3. boycrazzy

yeah the only prob is i dont know what -x means

4. OpenSessame

You have to take away the negative away from the variable X and put on the other side. You do this by dividing by -1.

5. OpenSessame

Its basically multiplying X (variable) by -1

6. OpenSessame

Understand?

7. boycrazzy

not really can you type it out

8. OpenSessame

I still dont under stand how to fix the -x

12. boycrazzy

oh nevermind

13. OpenSessame

okay -x is really the shortened form of -1*x

14. boycrazzy

and you flip the sign

15. OpenSessame

That would make the right side -3. But there is a rule with inequalities that when you divide or multiply by a negative number the inequality sign changes.

16. boycrazzy

alright i get it thanks good night if its night time where you live

17. OpenSessame

alright!
