can someone check my answer please?

solve using multiplication principle.
-4x>1/11

The way I solved it was dividing both sides by -1/4 to isolate x then I simplified left side which is -1/44 simplifying it to -1/11 is this correct or did I miss a step somewhere?

  • math -

    You multiplied by -1/4, I presume:

    -4x>1/11
    -4x (- 1/4) > 1/11 (- 1/4)
    x > -1/44.

    That's what I get, too!
