What can you conclude about an inequality when the quantities on both sides are multiplied or divided by positive numbers ? Will the inequality remain unchanged even though the values have changed? What happens when you multiply or divide the quantities on both sides by negative numbers ? Will the original inequality be reversed because of the change in values? Write down and report your conclusion to your teacher.
