# The Multiplication Property of Inequality requires that we reverse the inequality symbol when multiplying by a negative number. Given that − 7 < 5 , form the inequality that results when we multiply each side by − 2 .

To determine

To find:

The resulting inequality of the given inequality.

Explanation

Given:

The given inequality is 7<5 and the given property is Multiplication Property of Inequality.

Property:

Multiplication Property of Inequality states that when both sides of equation is multiplied by a same positive number then the inequality remains same but when both sides are multiplied by a same negative number then the inequality get reversed.

Calculation:

Use Multiplication Property of Inequality and multiply both sides of given inequality by 2
