But, it's easy to fix!

When you multiply or divide an inequality by a negative number, FLIP THE SIGN!

Let's try it:

-3x is less than or equal to 6, divide by -3 and flip the sign which gives x is greater than or equal to -2

Check it:

        when x = -2 we already know this works because of the equals ( = ) part

when x = 0, -3 ( 0 ) is less than or equal to 6 which gives 0 is less than or equal to 6.  Yep!

     when x = -10, -3 ( -10 ) is less than or equal to 6 which gives 30 is less than or equal to 6.  Nope!

OK, we have it now!
