1. Is this a true/false or did you make a typo? -5+2 equals -3, which is less than -2, so this would be true. If that's not the problem, please retype it.

2. Equations and inequalities work exactly the same way, except when multiplying or dividing by a negative number. In that case, the carat (<>) is reversed.

< = is less than what follows

> = is more than what follows
