 Question 341756: Good evening. I am taking a college level business calculus class. We are currently reviewing algebra. I am stuck on one problem. It is: A-5 ---- < -1 A+2 I know to take the -1 times A + 2 to get A - 5 < A + 2 and I know to take the +2 and subtract it from A - 5 to get A - 5 - 2, but what happens to the A on the right side. Is it not supposed to be a 0? I am really confused and lost and, therefore, unable to continue because the rest of this section contains similar problems. Please help me figure this problem out.
