  1. Well, actually fractions and divide are pretty similar.
    now for example
    (y/2) + 5 = -12
    add -5 to both sides
    (y/2) +0 = -17
    multiply both sides by 2
    y = -34

  3. 4. y/2 + 5 = -12 (use the inverse operation to get rid of the 5)
    y/2+5(-5)= -12 (-5)
    y/2=-17 (isolate the variable, aka, multiply both sides by 2, to get your answer of...)
    y= -34
