    We have: \[-\frac{4}{5} \leq -6x \] We can divide by -6 on either side, but remember that dividing by a negative flips the inequality; so we have: \[-\frac{4}{-5\cdot 6} \geq x\] \[-\frac{4}{30} \geq x\] Can you simplify that fraction and write it the inequality set-builder notation?

    Not quite, I made a sign error up there. The negatives cancel. And you said greather than or equal to whereas that should be less than or equal to. So: \[x \leq \frac{2}{15}\]
