how do I solve this problem 2x/2=(6-3y)/2?

I solved it for you in my initial answer.
The 2 in the numerator cancels with the 2 in the denominator on th left side and
x = (6-3y)/2

which is the solution of the initial equation you had for x in terms of y.
You CAN divide 2 into both 6 and -3y on the right if you wish to give
x = (6/2) - (3y)/2 = 3 - (3y)/2

    6-y --------- y^2-27-24 well it should simplify to (6-y)/(y^-1) which then changes to y(6-y) which then equals y(6-y)=0 then you set both parts equal to zero and solve for xero y=0 and/or (6-y)=0 so y=0 or y=6 Did you mean for this …
