The only exception is when we multiply/divide by a negative number: the inequality must "flip" to hold true. eg. Consider the inequality 3 > 2

Unformatted text preview: Multiply both sides by -2. Does the inequality still hold true? Oct 84:21 PM Example #2: Solve each inequality. Show your solution in the following three ways: (1) interval notation, (2) set notation, and (3) on a number line. (a) 2(x - 3) 10 (b) -3(x + 5) - 7 &lt; -2 + 2(x + 5) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Check your solution!
