    Answer:

    a>b

    Step-by-step explanation:

    −3(a–b) < 0

    Divide each side by -3, remembering to flip the inequality since we are dividing by a negative

    −3(a–b)/-3 > 0/-3

    a-b > 0

    Add b to each side

    a-b+b > 0+b

    a >b

    a is greater than b

    Let a = 5 and b = 4

    −3(5–4) < 0

    -3 (1) < 0

    -3 <0  True

    If a <b  Then it would be false

    Let a = 5 and b =7

    −3(5–7) < 0

    -3 (-2)<0

    6< 0  this is false
