3(y – 4) + 2 = 5(y + 1) – 3
First, we’ll distribute the 3 and 5 on the left and right sides:
3y – 12 + 2 = 5y + 5 – 3
Next, we’ll combine like terms on each side:
3y – 10 = 5y + 2
Now we’ll subtract 3y from both sides to isolate the y term:
2y – 10 = 2
Finally, we’ll add 10 to both sides and divide both sides by 2 to solve for y:
y = 6
Therefore, the solution is y = 6.
