32) -6/7y – 6 >= 42 i am not quiet sure how to do this and work it out completely if someone could tell me how or do it for me :) i have a lot of math left to do! THANKS

2. jim_thompson5910

the problem is $\Large -\frac{6}{7}y - 6 \ge 42$ right?

3. xXKittyXx

yup

4. jim_thompson5910

$\Large -\frac{6}{7}y - 6 \ge 42$ $\Large -\frac{6}{7}y\ge 42+6$ $\Large -\frac{6}{7}y\ge 48$ $\Large y\le (48)\left(-\frac{7}{6}\right)$ $\Large y\le \left(\frac{48}{1}\right)\left(-\frac{7}{6}\right)$ $\Large y\le \frac{48*(-7)}{1*6}$ $\Large y\le \frac{-336}{6}$ $\Large y \le -56$

Keep in mind the sign flips when you multiply both sides by a negative number
