Algebra

posted by .

I know when solving inequalities the sign changes when you multiply or divide by a negative number, my question is does this happen in equations as well?

    No, it doesn't. The equal sign is symmetrical, so reversal is not possible.

    4>2 implies -4<-2
    4=2+2 implies -4 = -(2+2)
