    –6b > 42 Add 6b to both sides, then subtract 42 from both sides to get -42 > 6b Divide both sides by 6 to get -42/6 > b Simplify to get -7 > b

    Yeah, but if you do it my way you don't have to worry about remembering to flip signs when dividing by negative number. I avoid dividing by negative numbers whenever possible.
