A. x/y > 3/2 B. x/y < 2/3 C. x > 3y/2 D. x < 3y/2 E. 2x > 3y

Take: −2x > −3y Divide both sides by -2 to get: x < 3y/2 [since we divided by a NEGATIVE value, we reversed the direction of the inequality symbol] Answer: D

Just one catch in this question answer is D here 2x<3y

But u can't take y below x because we don't know value of y it could be either positive or negative Because whenever negative value multiply or divided inequality sign change
