AIR POLLUTION Nitrogen dioxide is a brown gas that impairs breathing. 5 2 2 10 Յ t Յ 112 Find the time of the day when the amount of nitrogen dioxide is greater than or equal to 128 PSI. 25 In Exercises 94–98, determine whether the statement is true or false. If it is true, explain why it is true. If it is false, give an example to show why it is false. 94. a a a ϭ ϩ c aϩb b 95. If a Ͻ b, then a Ϫ c Ͼ b Ϫ c. 96. | a Ϫ b | ϭ | b Ϫ a | 97. | a Ϫ b | Յ | b | ϩ | a | 98. 1, we saw how a one-to-one correspondence between the set of real numbers and the points on a straight line leads to a coordinate system on a line (a onedimensional space).

If a Ͻ b and c Ͻ 0, then ac Ͼ bc. 2 Ͻ 3 and 3 Ͻ 8, so 2 Ͻ 8. Ϫ5 Ͻ Ϫ3, so Ϫ5 ϩ 2 Ͻ Ϫ3 ϩ 2; that is, Ϫ3 Ͻ Ϫ1. Ϫ5 Ͻ Ϫ3, and since 2 Ͼ 0, we have (Ϫ5)(2) Ͻ (Ϫ3)(2); that is, Ϫ10 Ͻ Ϫ6. Ϫ2 Ͻ 4, and since Ϫ3 Ͻ 0, we have (Ϫ2)(Ϫ3) Ͼ (4)(Ϫ3); that is, 6 Ͼ Ϫ12. Similar properties hold if each inequality sign, Ͻ, between a and b and between b and c is replaced by Ն, Ͼ, or Յ. Note that Property 4 says that an inequality sign is reversed if the inequality is multiplied by a negative number. A real number is a solution of an inequality involving a variable if a true statement is obtained when the variable is replaced by that number.
