Is either a or b equal to zero (0)? How about a < 0 or b < 0?

if x < 5 then -4<-20
I'm thinking you'll just want to type that one over.

If one could magically understand the original question, clarifying questions would not be required.

For the first, I need more information or that is the corret answer, "More Informatino Required".

For the second, the first inequality has nothing to do with the second inequality. The question is meaningless the way it is written.
