Any guidance would be wonderful, thank you!!Answer by nerdybill(6948)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!-2x > 1/9 You are solving for x -- any time you multiply or divide by a negative value, you must flip the inequality. . -2x > 1/9 Dividing both sides by 2: -x > 1/18 Multiplying both sides by -1: x < -1/18 (notice the inequality flipped) . That is: {x | x is less than -1/18 }
