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
