Question:

If 15 - 2x < 7, then for all possible values of x that make the inequality true,
(a) x<8
(b) x>8
(c) x>4
(d) x<4
(e) x>1/4

Answer:

i chose the answer (d) but the answer of the book said (c).

i understand where they are coming from we have to change the inequality sign due to the division we do. but i don't understand the logic. can someone kindly, please, explain the logic?

-Great Thank in advance =)
