    Solve it as if the < were an =. As a general rule, that's what you do with all inequalities. *If* you have to divide by a negative, then you'll have to flip the < around to become a >.

    Why don't you work through them on here and I'll tell you at each step whether you're doing good. I'll start you off with the first one: \[\begin{align} 6 - 2(5y - 1) &< 18\\ -2(5y - 1) &< 18 - 6\\ -2(5y - 1) &< 12 \end{align}\]

    And if you put forth some effort as I try to walk you through it, you will get to the answer.

    I posted your first step, now try to take the next one while you try to solve it. Post that, and I'll let you know if it's right or wrong.
