1y+112y+6
I'm not asking for the answer, just don't know what to do first.

combine the y, and then the numbers...
y+17=? 
Thanks but I'm still confused as to what the value for Y is and how to find it.

My mistake i did not write the equation correctly. It should read
1y+11=2y+6 
Most likely you do not have to find the value for Y...n you just have to simplify it
