# How do you solve -19< \frac { x } { 12}?

Oct 13, 2017

$- 228 < x$
On a number line you would have a large negative line drawn back towards $- 228$, but with a $\circ$ at $- 228$ because $x$ is greater than it. On the $+$ side the line would go to infinity.

#### Explanation:

$- 19 < \frac{x}{12}$

$- 19 \times 12 < \left(\frac{x}{\cancel{12}}\right) \times \cancel{12}$

$- 228 < x$
