The problem is this:
-6x>1/13
I know that I need to divide both sides by -6 to get the answer for X.
-6x>1/13
How do I divide 1/13 by 6
Please show me how division works with fractions that I can figure this out in the future as well.

Hi OneidaFL,
You also need to know that when you divide (or multiply) an inequality by a negative number, you must reverse the order of the inequality.
$\displaystyle -6x>\dfrac{1}{13}$
An easier way to solve this would be to multiply all terms by 13. Then divide.
$\displaystyle -78x>1$
$\displaystyle x<-\dfrac{1}{78}$
