Step 1
First, divide each side of the inequality by - 5 to solve for w while keeping the inequality balanced. However, whenever dividing or multiplying an inequality by a negative term we must reverse the inequality symbol:
- 55 - 5 - 5 w - 5
11 - 5 w - 5
11 w
To solve in terms of w we need to reverse or "flip" the entire inequality:
w 11
