(M+N) / MN > 1

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

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.
