## anonymous 5 years ago how do i solve :6-2(5y-1)<18

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 >.

Does that help?

that kind of helps what are the steps for solving the answer

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}
