    Divide both sides by -6 and don't forget to reverse the inequality symbol because you will be dividing by a negative number.

    That's the thing. She doesn't really have to do that. I think that's the confusing part. I was trying to convince her to do it a different way: -6x < 30 Subtract 30 from both sides, then add 6x to both sides: -30 < 6x Then divide both sides by 6: -30/6 < x -5 < x

    It is open. Because it is only > or < not >= or <=.
