you need use your words and describe where your having the trouble. The whole 'i don't understand' routine does nothing to narrow it down

normally when people dont specify where they are having trouble it means the WHOLE PROBLEM!!!!!!!

then see the previous post where i walk you through the 'whole problem' including: 1) clarification of what is being asked in the question, 2) method of solution through algebra 3) method of solution on number line the answer can't just be downloaded to your brain, there is some amount of effort required from your end, regardless of how much you elevate and demand things.

Most fundamentally, you must know that you need y > stuff Getting that 'y' all alone is your task. How are things attached to the 'y' and how can you get them off. y + 5  5 is attached by addition. Use subtraction to move it. y / 5  5 is attached by division. Use multiplication to move it.

3y + 15 > 6 Subtract 15 from both sides 3y+1515 > 615 you get.. 3y > 21 Divide by 3 on both sides 3y/3 > 21/3 You get.. y > 7
