    2-2y-5y<65
    combine like terms
    2 - 7 y < 65
    add -2 to both sides
    -7 y < 63
    divide both sides by 7
    -y < 9
    multiply both sides by -1
    change direction of arrow when multiplying by negative number
    y > -9
    check with y = -8
    2 - 2(-8) -5(-8)
    2 + 16 + 40 = 58 yes less than 65
