In the explanation to PS299, OG10 says in point II " -1 < - c/d < 1 .... is equivalent to 0 < c/d < 1 ".

How do we go from ( -1 < -c/d < 1 ) to ( 0 < c/d < 1 ) ?

Thanks

yes, it's complete: ( -1 < -c/d < 1 ) = ( 0 < c/d < 1 ) why?

Suppose that "if d>0"
How do we go from ( -1 < -c/d < 1 ) to ( 0 < c/d < 1 )?


Even if d>0 and (-1 < -c/d < 1), c could be -ve or 0 or +ve and similarly c/d is also a +ve or -ve fraction.

I guess the question is still not complete cuz C has to be none-zero number, which is smaller than d.

The question is still not complete. Make sure the question is posted completely.

Agree that the question is not complete
for example if you take c/d=-0.5 one inequality does not resolve to the other.
