Question

# How is dividing each side of X>0 by a negative value different from dividing each side by a positive value?

Hint:

### An inequality is a mathematical statement containing the symbols<,>,≤ or ≥ .

We are asked to find how dividing the inequality x>0 by a negative number and a positive number is different.

## The correct answer is: But, when we divide the inequality by a positive number, the direction of the symbol does not change.

Step 1 of 1:

Yes, it is different to divide X by a negative value and X from a positive value.

If we divide X by negative value then we would obtain a negative answer. This will reverse the direction of the inequality symbol.

But, when we divide the inequality by a positive number, the direction of the symbol does not change.

Division and multiplication of an inequality by a negative number changes the direction of the inequality symbol.
