Explain what happens in both examples and when the direction of the inequality symbol is reversed. Answer by stanbon(57224)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Add -5 to both sides of the inequality 7 > 1. You get 2 > -4 which is true Notice that the order of the inequality has not been affected. -------------------------------------- Then divide both sides of the inequality -25 > -30 by -6. You get 25/6 < 5 if you do it correctly Notice that when you divide an inequality by a negative the order of the inequality is reversed. ------------------------------------------------ Explain what happens in both examples and when the direction of the inequality symbol is reversed. ============================== Cheers, Stan H.
