Debbie finished her algebra test early so she decided to check each of her answers. After checking her answer to question #10, she realized she made a mistake in her solution. In which step does Debbie make her mistake?

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
