Hi--I have the following problem:

Solve the inequality log2(112)is less than x. (2 is the base)

I did this problem and got x is less than 4. However, I was told this is the incorrect answer. It should be x is more than 4. I thought that you only had a change in the equality sign when you are multiplying or dividing by a negative number. Why did this inequality sign change direction?

Thanks for explaining it to me.
