1. -2x - 10 < 2

2. -2x + 15 < 17

I didn't flip the inequality sign when I divided by (-2).

But why do we always have to flip the sign when we multiply or divide by a negative number?

mathforum is good.

1.

-2 x - 10 < 2

-2 x < 2 + 10

-2 x < 12 Divide both sides with -2

x > 12 / - 2

x > - 6

2.

-2x + 15 < 17

-2 x < 17 - 15

-2 x < 2 Divide both sides with -2

x > 2 / -2

x > -1
