(M+N) / MN > 1

What happens to the inequality sign when we invert the left side like so:

MN / (M+N) ? 1

and why does it happen?

inequality sign will reverse because in case one the denominator is lesser than numerator. But if denominator will be come more than numerator than the resultant will be less than 1

Exactly as explained by Amar.

For Eg: 10 / 5 = 2 which is > 1 but 5/10 = 0.5 which is < 1.
