Hiya! Would somebody be able to check my answer? The solution of -t/18 > 10 is t < - 180. True or false? I believe the answer to be True because the absolute value can never be negative. Would really appreciate the extra help. Thanks!

This is not an absolute value question only when you see the 2 lines around it |....|

-t/18 > 10 you can solve this inequality if you multiply both sides by 18 it will still hold that the left side is greater than the right side -t/18 * 18 > 10*18 -t>180 now you can multiply both sides by -1 but if you multiply by -1 the greater than sign becomes less than sign t<-180

so its true

to understand why -1 flips the sign, take a look at another example

look at the number line, lets suppose there is some number b and some number a, and b is more than a

so we went from b>a to -b<-a both of these are saying the same thing just in a different way

now you know why multiplying by -1 flips the inequality sign

Ok. I was thinking it was not absolute value however it was included in an all absolute value worksheet so I was not sure (that's why I asked.) I just did not know if you changed the greater sign to a less sign, which you have now clarified for me that you do. Thank you again for the help!!!! yay
