  1. -11y-13>42
    -11y > 55
    y < -5

    or, you can move the y stuff to the right side
    -11y-13>42
    -55 > 11y
    -5 > y

    when you multiply by a negative value, you switch directions. It's just a shorthand way of moving things to the other side of the arrow.

  2. No. Look at the signs.
