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=7y-5

ok so can you check my work if I did it correct

12y-7y-5=0

5y-5=0

y=1

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
