Multiplication Property of Inequality

Theory

Multiplication Property of Inequality

When multiplying one side of an inequality with a positive number it's important to multiply the other side by the same number to ensure that the inequality still holds. For example, the inequality can be multiplied by on both sides. However, this only yields when multiplying by positive numbers. When multiplying both sides by a negative number the inequality sign must be flipped.
