Why do you not change the inequality sign when solving $9x>-\frac{3}{4}$ ?

Step 1
To solve the inequality, you have to isolate x by dividing by 9, which is a positive number.
If the inequality had been: $-9x$ $-\frac{3}{4}$ , then -9 would have to be dividedfrom each side and the sign would have to be flipped to $<$ .
