Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

Divide each side of the inequality by #color(blue)(-2.8)# to solve for #n# while keeping the inequality balanced. However, because we are multiplying or dividing an inequality by a negative term we must reverse the inequality operator:

#9.8/color(blue)(-2.8) color(red)(<) (-2.8n)/color(blue)(-2.8)#

#-3.5 color(red)(<) (color(blue)(cancel(color(black)(-2.8)))n)/cancel(color(blue)(-2.8))#

#-3.5 color(red)(<) n#

To write this in terms of #n# we can reverse or "flip" the entire inequality:

#n > -3.5#
