    You made algebra mistakes. The only way to get the -2 away from y is to divide; there is no division in your answer. Also when you cross a negative over (in order to get the y positive) you have to change the direction of > thingy.

    You have to start from the top, the 2 is going to divide the 4 and the x. And some how you turning the > either too much or not enough.
