    Nothing special happens when you add or subtract with inequations.
    You are thinking about multiplying and dividing by negatives

    If you multiply or divide each term of an inequation by a negative number, you must reverse the inequality sign
    e.g.

    3x > 12
    x > 4

    but
    -5x < 25
    x > -5

    for yours
    Y-5>-6 just add 5 to both sides
    y > -6 + 5
    y > -1
