Y over 6 > 10 and i need to solve
A. y < â€“16
B. y > â€“60
C. y > 4
D. y < â€“60 I got C, but that's not right

y/6 > 10
y < 60
Looks like D
When you multiply be a negative value, change the direction of the inequality. It's just a shorthand way to make things switch sides. Since
y/6 > 10
that's the same as
y/6 > 10
add y/6 to both sides to get
0 > 10 + y/6
now subtract 10 to get
10 > y/6
now multiply by 6 to get
60 > y
or
y < 60 
Thank you so much I have put your info into my notes....
