What is the answer to this one?

4/7y - 8 = 2/7y + 10

4/7y - 8 = 2/7y + 10

(4/7y - 8) - 2/7y = (2/7y + 10)- 2/7y

2/7y - 8 = 10

2/7y - 8 + 8 = 10 - 8

2/7y = 2

(2/7 y)/ 2/7 = 2/1 / 2/7

y = 2/14 or 1/7

7y - 8 = 2/7y + 10

4/7y - 8 = 2/7y + 10

(4/7y - 8) - 2/7y = (2/7y + 10)- 2/7y

2/7y - 8 = 10

2/7y - 8 + 8 = 10 - 8 ((((((error here should be +8 on the right))))

2/7y = 18

(2/7y) / 2/7 = 18 / (2/7)

y = 63
