Jenny tried to solve the following inequality but made a mistake in her work:

\begin{alignedat}{4} \text{Step 0:} & -27 & -9 & x & & < & 36 \\ \text{Step 1:} & & -9 & x & & < & 63 \\ \text{Step 2:} & & & x & & < & -7 \end{alignedat}

Determine which step is incorrect and explain the error.

Consider the following inequalities:

i

Solve the inequality.

ii
