    \[-ax+2b>8\]first subtract \(2b\) from both sides , get \[-ax=8-2b\]

    okay, that's what I was thinking I had to do... do you have to divide A from both sides?

    then they want you to do this ( and this is the mistake) they want you to divide by \(-a\) and say "since \(-a\) is negative, i should switch the inequality" and write \[x<\frac{8-2b}{-a}\] or \[x<\frac{2b-8}{a}\]
