1012y is correct.
It may also be written as 12y+10. There is no RULE that I know of that says the equation MUST be written one way or the other; however, most people prefer to write the variable (y term) first with the number following. Having said that, most people don't like to start an equation with a negative term. In my opinion, take your pick.
