Grade 7 - Mathematics
6.32 Properties of Inequalities - III

Examples:
  1. Consider the inequality 6 < 8.
    Multiplying both sides of the inequality by (-6).
    L.H.S. = 6 * -6 = -36
    R.H.S. = 8 * -6 = -48
    Since 6 < 8, 8 lies to the right of 6, multiplying both sides by -6.
    6 * (-6) = -36 lies to the right of 8 * (-6) = -48.
    \ -36 > -48.
    i.e., If 6 < 8, then 6 * -6 > 8 * -6
    Order of inequality reversed.
  2. Consider the inequality -3 < 8,
    Multiplying both sides of the inequality by -4.
    L.H.S. = -3 * -4 = -12
    R.H.S. = 8 * -4 = -32
    Since -3 < 8, 8 lies to the right of -3,
    Multiplying both sides by -4
    -3 * -4 = 12 lies to the right of 8 * -4 = -32
    \ -12 > -32
    i.e., If -3 < 8, then -3 * -4 > 8 * -4
    Order of inequality reversed.

    Multiplying or dividing both sides of a inequality by the same negative number reverses the order of the inequality.
    For any three numbers a, b and c where c < 0.
    1. If a < B then ac > bc and a/c > b/c.
    2. If a > B then ac < bc and a/c < b/c.

Property: If both sides of an inequation are multiplied or divided by the same negative number, the order of the resulting inequation is reversed.

Example 1:
Solve for x in the inequality:
8 < 2 - 2x
Subtrating 2 on both sides of the inequality we get
8 - 2 < 2 - 2 - 2x
6 < - 2x
Dividing both sides of the inequality with -2 reverses the inequality sign
-3 > x
x < -3

Example 2:
Solve for y in the inequality:
(-y)/4 > 7
Multiplying both sides of the inequality with 4
(-y)/4 . 4 > 7 . 4
-y > 28
Dividing both sides of with (-1) reverses the inequality sign
y < -28
