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

thx you so much i was so confused

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
