# How do you solve -4y + 6< -14?

Aug 22, 2015

$y > 5$

#### Explanation:

Given -4y+6 < -14#

Add $\left(4 y + 14\right)$ to both sides
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} 20 < 4 y$

Divide both sides by $4$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} 5 < y$

or, if you prefer to have your variables written first:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} y > 5$
