Solve the inequality 6y+5>8?

First think how you would solve this if it was simply an '=' sign instead of a >

Deduct 5 from both sides

This would give us 6y>3

Divide both sides by 6

Think: because this is an inequality, is the value you are dividing by >0, in this cae it is so the inequality sign remains the same way around.

y>0.5
