    To solve for y in the equation:3(y – 4) = 15

    We will follow these steps:

    1. Distribute the coefficient on the left side
    2. Divide both sides by the coefficient of y to isolate y

    Step 1: Distribute the coefficient on the left side

    3(y – 4) = 153y – 12 = 15

    Step 2: Divide both sides by the coefficient of y to isolate y3y – 12 = 153y = 27y = 9

    Therefore, the value of y that satisfies the equation 3(y – 4) = 15 is y = 9.
