Here you can choose which side of the inequality to get the variables on. It's really up to you and whatever way makes more sense. In this problem, we will move the variables to the left side. | | | *add y to each side* | | *remember y is the same as 1y* | | *subtract 2 from each side* | | *simplify* | | *divide each side by 4* | *or* | *notice that the sign didn't switch* |
Since we divided each side by positive 4, we do not switch the > to <. |
