Answer:

#m > -6#

Explanation:

Since you can add or subtract the same amount to either side of an inequality without effecting the validity of the inequality:

#-2m < 5 - m +1#

after combining the constants on the right side:
#-2m < 6 - m#

adding #2m# to both sides
#0 < 6 +m#

subtracting #6# from both sides:
#-6 < m#

#rarr m > -6#
