Nothing special happens when you add or subtract with inequations.
You are thinking about multiplying and dividing by negatives
If you multiply or divide each term of an inequation by a negative number, you must reverse the inequality sign
e.g.
3x > 12
x > 4
but
5x < 25
x > 5
for yours
Y5>6 just add 5 to both sides
y > 6 + 5
y > 1
