just treat it like an equality and isolate the y -4y + 5 = 17 Remember when you multiply or divide both sides by a negative you have to flip the inequality
Show me your work and I can tell you if you are on the right track
at the step -4y ≥ 12 -4y/4 ≥ 12/4 -y ≥ 3 when you divide or multiply by a negative you always flip the inequality -y/-1 ≤ 3/-1 y ≤ -3
