The answer of this question is y $\geq$ $\frac{8-7x}{-2}$. You can simplify this to y $\geq$ -4-7x as 8 can be divided by -2.
To solve this inequality for y, you first subtract 7x from both the sides, which results in -2y $\leq$ 8-7x. Next, you divide the -2 from both the sides which isolates y. BUT because you're dividing from a negative number you will have to flip the sign. The answer is y $\geq$ $\frac{8-7x}{-2}$.
