Well, actually fractions and divide are pretty similar.

now for example

(y/2) + 5 = -12

add -5 to both sides

(y/2) +0 = -17

multiply both sides by 2

y = -34

4. y/2 + 5 = -12 (use the inverse operation to get rid of the 5)

y/2+5(-5)= -12 (-5)

y/2=-17 (isolate the variable, aka, multiply both sides by 2, to get your answer of...)

y= -34
