Original Equation: 2 + 3y = 5(y - 2)

Step One: 2 + 3y = 5y - 10

Step Two: 2 = 2y - 10

Step Three: -8 = 2y

Step Four: -4 = y y = -4

**Jai**, Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at 11:31amStep 1 & 2 are right. She made the first mistake in Step 3, it should be

2 + 10 = 2y

12 = 2y

And so the succeeding steps are wrong too. But the earliest was in step 3.

hope this helps :3
