hmm, what would you expect to happen when you reverse the direction of a number?

you would expect it to go to the opposite side?

lets see -3 < 5 but when we multiply both sides by a negative, we are reversing the order of the number, instead of 3 to the left, -(-3) is 3 to the right instead of 5 to the right, -(5) is 5 to the left 3 < -5 is simply not accurate

when we 'switch' the direction of the number, the direction of the inequality is affected. we can make one rule and say it works for the = sign as well ... seeing that reversing an = sign just produces the same symbol again.
