How do you solve this inequality: a + 8  2(a  12) > 0 a + 8  2(a  12) > 0
a + 8  2a + 24 > 0 {used distributive property} a + 32 > 0 {combined like terms} a > 32 {subtracted 32 from each side} a < 32 {divided each side by 1 and changed the inequality sign} Whenever you multiply or divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number, you have to change or flip the inequality sign  Algebra House
