# How do you solve -8> k/-0.4?

Jun 28, 2016

$k > 3.2$, representing real numbers greater than 3.2.

#### Explanation:

Multiplication of both sides of an inequality by a negative number

reverses the inequality sign. If $a > b , - a < - b$

Multiplication by $- 0.4$ of $- 8 > \frac{k}{- 0.4}$ turns it to

$\left(- 8\right) \left(- 0.4\right) < k$.

So, $k > 3.2$.
