In a case such as -2>5x, if I then diving -2 by 5, should this cause the inequality to reverse? I'm aware that if I was dividing by a negative number then it will reverse but not sure in this case.

you are right and go ahead! best of luck !!!

sorry, dont quite understand. Will the inequality reverse if I divided -2 by 5? so basically from -2>5x I will then get -2/5 <x

Is this right? and can you explain the principle of why this is the case to me please?
