**Reiny**, Saturday, December 18, 2010 at 9:58pm7y - 6 < 6y -1

7y - 6y < -1 + 6

y < 5

notice I performed the same steps as I would for an ordinary equation.

The only exception is, ...

"When you multiply or divide both sides by a negative, the inequality sign has to be reversed"

e.g.

if you had

-3x > 12

then

x < -4 , ( I divided both sides by -3 )
