Aug 12, 2018

Use the order of operations in reverse and remember that dividing or multiplying by a negative reverses the inequality

Explanation:

The order of operations is PEMDAS in reverse it is PESADM ( if you lose your cell phone in PE you are a SAD M(am)

Remember multiply or dividing by a negative reverses the value of the quality being divided or multiplied.

$+ \times - = -$

$\left(\frac{-}{-}\right) = +$

 < xx (-) = > y  >/(-) = <#

Just do the order of operations in reverse as in solving an equation always doing the opposite. Then remember to reverse the inequality sign whenever the inequality is multiplied or divided by a negative.
