  1. 5 - 9y - 2y < 27
    we just solve it like a normal equation.
    5 - 11y < 27
    -11y < 27 - 5
    -11y < 22
    y > -2
    note that when dividing both sides by a negative number, the inequality sign becomes its opposite. like here, both sides are divided by -11, and thus the sign changes from < to >.

    hope this helps~ :)
