How do you solve the inequality #-a/7+1/7>1/14#?
A fraction consists of
You can not directly compare the counts (numerators) unless the size indicators (denominators) as the same.
Now that the denominators are all the same the inequality is still true if we compare only the counts (numerators).
Divide both sides by 2
Subtract 1 from both sides
Multiply both sides by (-1) and turn the inequality round the other way. You always turn the inequality if multiply by any negative value.
