Answer:

To solve this divide each side of the inequality by #color(red)(0.6)#

Explanation:

Divide each side of the inequality by #color(red)(0.6)# to solve for #x# while keeping the inequality balanced:

#0.6x < -24#

#(0.6x)/color(red)(0.6) < -24/color(red)(0.6)#

#(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(0.6)))x)/cancel(color(red)(0.6)) < -24/color(red)(0.6)#

#x < -24/0.6#

#x < -40#
