can you help me with this equation and may you please show your work?
You want the unknowns on one side and everything else on the other side. Let's move the 3 on the right side to the left side. We can do that by adding -3 to both sides.
Remove the parentheses.
Now combine terms.
Now multiply both sides by -1 to get rid of the minus signs (we want to know y, not -y).
6=y or if you prefer
