3-3 Solving Inequalities Using Multiplication and Division

Multiplying or dividing by a negative number changes the meaning of the inequality. You need to reverse (flip) the inequality symbol to make the inequality true.

Multiplication Property of Inequality
Words: Let a, b, and c be real numbers with c > 0 If a > b, then ac > bc If a < b, then ac < bc ex: -2(2) < 3(2) Let a, b, and c be real numbers with c < 0 If a > b, then ac < bc If a < b, then ac > bc ex: 3(-1) < 1(-2)

Division Property of Inequality
Words: Let a, b, and c be real numbers with c > 0 𝐼𝑓 𝑎 > 𝑏, 𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑛 𝑎 𝑐 > 𝑐 𝑐 𝐼𝑓 𝑎 < 𝑏, 𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑛 𝑎 𝑐 < 𝑐 𝑐 Let a, b, and c be real numbers with c < 0 𝐼𝑓 𝑎 > 𝑏, 𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑛 𝑎 𝑐 < 𝑐 𝑐 𝐼𝑓 𝑎 < 𝑏, 𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑛 𝑎 𝑐 > 𝑐 𝑐
