Can someone help me 3y-20=8y


Objective: Solve 3y - 20 = 8y for y. Step 1: Collect the y-terms. To collect the y-terms, you'll need to subtract 3y from both sides. 3y - 20 - 3y = 8y - 3y              -20 = 5y Step 2: Isolate y. Now that there is only one variable term, you must isolate the variable by dividing the term by the coefficient of the variable. -20 ÷ 5 = 5y ÷ 5         -4 = y Answer: y = -4
