# How do you solve -84<7c?

Jun 1, 2017

$c > - 12$

#### Explanation:

If $- 84$ is less-than $\left(<\right)$ $7 c$, then $7 c$ must be higher in value than $- 84$.

So $7$ multiplied by what $= - 84$? Using a calculator, trial and error, or by dividing $- 84$ by $7$, you will find that

$7 \cdot \left(- 12\right) = - 84$

So your answer is: '$c$ is more than $- 12$' OR '$c > - 12$' as any number higher in value than $- 12$ could equal $c$.

Hope this helps!
