I need help on how to solve equations like this
(y5)/3 =1
I don't quite understand it

objective: get y alone.
1) multiply both sides by 3
y5=3
add 5 to each side
y=8 
(y5)/3 =1
Multiply both sides by 3
y  5 = 3
Add 5 to both sides.
y = 8 
Thank you, Ms.Sue and Bob! I never really understood how to solve these types of equations

You're welcome.
