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