I don't know how to start this problem and it goes like this 6y2 = 7y  5?
Can you please help me just to start it off

multiply 6 and 2, so it would be 12y=7y5

Geometry 
Emory,
ok so can you check my work if I did it correct
12y7y5=0
5y5=0
y=1

It would be 1.
12y=7y5
then you subtract 7y and you get:
5y=5
then you divide 5 for both sides so you get:
y=1
