1. Why does the inequality sign change when both sides of the inequality are multiplied or divided by a negative number? Does this happen with equations? Why or why not?

2. Write an inequality for your classmates to solve. In your inequality, use both the multiplication and addition properties of inequalities. Example: 3x + 5 < 5x + 17
I answered the first part can I get some help on number 2??
