11y+22=33y-11

1.5

---------------------
How I got it/Working:
---------------------
11y + 22 = 33y - 11

11y + 22 = 33y - 11
+ 11 = 33y + 11

11y + 33 = 33y

11y + 33 = 33y
-11y + 33 = -11y

33 = 22y
33 divided by 22 = y
y = 1.5

Tip:
----
Remember, if you minus a number from one side, you must minus it from the other side to keep the equation balanced.

2. 11y+22=33y-11

Add 11 and subtract 11y from both sides.

33 = 22y

Divide both sides by 22.

1.5 = y

Although I got the same answer as anonymous, I hope this makes the process clearer. Thanks for asking.
