Answer:

#v < 12#

Explanation:

To solve this we must divide each side of the inequality by #color(blue)(-6)# to isolate the #v# term while keeping the inequality balance. However, we multiplying or dividing an inequality by a negative term we must reverse the inequality:

#(-6v)/color(blue)(-6) color(red)(<) (-72)/color(blue)(-6)#

#(cancel(-6)v)/cancel(color(blue)(-6)) color(red)(<) 12#

#v color(red)(<) 12#
