Hi,

Is there any general rule for multiplication or division of two inequalities?

If
a<x<b and c<y<d
then
a+c<x+y<b+d
a-d<x-y<b-c

Now is there any rule to fine xy or x/y?

Thank you in advance.

regards,
Jack

My proposals is as follows:
1.
0<a<x<b and 0<c<y<d
then ac<xy<bd and a/d<x/y<b/c
2.
a<x<b<0 and c<y<d<0
then ac>xy>bd and a/d>x/y>b/c

anyway, more information is needed
