Properties of Inequalities 5

Solving Inequalities  Solve as you would an equation… With three new rules  Reverse the signs (i.e., etc.) when: Dividing by a negative number Multiplying by a negative number Swapping positions of the variable and final answer Variable needs to be on the left in the event of a single inequality symbol Variable needs to be in the middle in the event of two inequality symbols (continued inequality) 6 www.themegallery.com
