So, say, we have the inequality ty <= 1-sx(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does this inequality always translate to y <= 1/t - s/tx (for t > 0)

y >= 1/t - s/tx (for t < 0)? (due to division by divided signs?)

I'm sure this is true, as I've tested it for xy <= 1. But I just want to be sure, since this nuance is definitely easy to miss (and requires a step that I'm usually not accustomed to taking so far).
