Answer:

The simplified version would read as #y < 6#.

Explanation:

While solving such questions what we need to do is to bring the variable (#y# in this case) to any one side of the inequality and separate the numbers to the other side.

Now, take #-5y# to the left-hand side and take #-4# to the right-hand side. If you are familiar with the inequality sign operations, you will know that with changes in sides, the sign of the numbers changes. So we have,

#5y < 30#

Dividing both sides by #5#, we obtain

# y < 6#

All the best for your studies.
