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

  • Geometry - ,

    multiply 6 and 2, so it would be 12y=7y-5

  • Geometry - ,

    ok so can you check my work if I did it correct
    12y-7y-5=0
    5y-5=0
    y=1

  • Geometry - ,

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

    look at the end of
