Question:

Mark the correct alternative in each of the following:

Given that $x, y$ and $b$ are real numbers and $x0$, then

(a) $x / b (b)$x / b \leq y / b$(c)$x / b>y / b$(d)$x / b \geq y / b$Solution: Given that$x, y$and$b$are real numbers and$x0$. Both sides of an inequality can be multiplied or divided by the same positive number.$\therefore \frac{x}{b}<\frac{y}{b}\$

Hence, the correct option is (a).
