Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

in the first case x>-14 simply means that x is greater than the value -14.in the second case, you have used the inequality sigh wrongly as x<-14, which implies that x is less than the value -14 which contradicts the statement that had earlier on been stipulated in the question.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
