can you help me with this equation and may you please show your work?
3=3y

3=3y
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.
3+(3)=3+(3)y
Remove the parentheses.
33=33y
Now combine terms.
6=y
Now multiply both sides by 1 to get rid of the minus signs (we want to know y, not y).
1*6=1*y
6=y or if you prefer
y=6
check my work. 
thnx
