    Arrow Is this the correct answer?

    I'm graphing inequalities and the problem {3y} is less than 18, so I divided the and I got y is less then 6 then I have to get the negative value, so I did -y is greater then 6...I flipped the sign basically, then divided by negative 1 and got y is greater then 6...is that correct? If not, please tell me what I have to do to get the correct answer, thanks!

    I don't know why you want the negative values...

    But I know that when you multiply y<6 by -1, it yields -y>{\color{red}-}6, and not 6 !

    Be very careful

    Does that help you in your problem ?
