Step 1
Multiply each side of the inequality by -2 to solve for h while keeping the inequality balanced. However, because we are multiplying or dividing an inequality by a negative number we must reverse the inequality operator:
$-2×3<-2×\frac{h}{-2}$
$-6<\overline{)-2}×\frac{h}{\overline{)-2}}$
$-6
We can state the solution in terms of h by reversing or "flipping" the entire inequality:
$h>-6$
To graph this we will draw a vertical line at -6 on the horizontal axis.
The line will be a dashed line because the inequality operator does not contain an "or equal to" clause.
