Answer:

#p<1#

Explanation:

#-5p+16 >11#

Start by subtracting #16# from both sides

#-5p cancel(+16) cancel(-16) > 11 - 16#

#-5p > -5#

Then, divide both sides by #-5#

#(cancel(-5p))/cancel(-5)>(-5)/-5#

#p<1#

Note: When you are solving an inequality, you must change the sign if you divide both sides by a negative number.
