# How do you solve 2 -4x > -22?

Jul 6, 2015

Solve as if both sides are equal. When you divide by a negative number, reverse the inequality.

#### Explanation:

$2 - 4 x > - 22$

Subtract $2$ from both sides of the inequality.

$- 4 x > - 22 - 2$ =

$- 4 x > - 24$

Divide both sides by $- 4$. Reverse the inequality.

$x < \frac{- 24}{- 4}$ =

$x < 6$
