I encourage you to graph all four answer choices, plus the given " x < 5 " Having the graphs to compare should make it easy for you to identify the correct answer.

When you multiply or divide an inequality by a negative number, the inequality signs changes direction. You have given: x < 5 Every choice starts with -x, so multiply both sides by -1.

benlindquist i don't have graphs I'm afraid you've missed my point. I'm asking YOU to graph each inequality. Graphing inequalities is a basic skill in math.
