It looks like Lindsey copied the wrong question. As for the inequality above, I would divide both sides by 4 vs. distributing the 4...it will save you time and reduce your chances for errors...than subtract 1 from both sides with the last step being divide both sides by 5...which will result in y > -2

Treat this like a regulator equation. Start by distributing the 4: 4(5y+1) = 20y+4
So you have 20y + 4 > -36 (Subtract 4 from both sides)
