subtract 6y from each side
y6<1
add 6 to each side
y<5

7y  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 )
