Sorry, I think i forgot to include the less or greater sign in the first post. Thank you very much.

**drwls**, Thursday, January 6, 2011 at 7:28amWhich is it, > or < ?

If a +3 > -17 ,

a > -20

You get that by subtracting 3 from each side. You can do the same thing if your symbol is < .

The direction of the > or < sign does not change when you add or subtract the same number from both sides.
