**Reiny**, Monday, March 24, 2008 at 1:52pmNothing 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

Y-5>-6 just add 5 to both sides

y > -6 + 5

y > -1
