How do you solve k/7< -2?

Feb 5, 2017

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

Multiply each side of the inequality by $\textcolor{red}{7}$ to solve for $k$ while keeping the inequality balanced:

$\textcolor{red}{7} \times \frac{k}{7} < \textcolor{red}{7} \times - 2$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{7}} \times \frac{k}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{7}}}} < - 14$

$k < - 14$
