2(y-6) = 3y + 12 - y

Start by combining the y's on the right side.

2(y-6) = 2y + 12

Now do the distributive property on 2(y-6) to get 2y-12. (Both the y and the -6 are multiplied by the outside 2.)

2y - 12 = 2y + 12

Get all the numbers without variables (the y's) on the right side by adding 12 to both sides...

2y = 2y + 24

Combine the y's by subtracting 2y from the right...

0 = 24

That is not correct, so there is no solution.
