OpenStudy (anonymous):

thats right but can you tell me why?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

-3-x<1 3+x>-1 x>-4

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[-3-x<1\] \[-3<x+1\] \[-4<x\] x is GREATER than -4

OpenStudy (anonymous):

well i got that but why isnt it -\[\infty\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

-x < 4 x > -4 when dividing both sides by a negative the inequality sign flips

OpenStudy (anonymous):

oh yeah i knew that... lol

OpenStudy (anonymous):

oh ok so you also understand why its (-4,inf) right

OpenStudy (anonymous):

you can multiply by a negative number and change signs if you like. but you can also just add to both sides to assure that the coefficient of x is positive

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[-x>10\] \[-x+x>10+x\] \[0>10+x\] \[-10>x\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yeah that might be easier so i dont forget, thanks
