A 20−pound bag of sugar costs (y + 3) dollars while a 10−pound package costs (y − 3) dollars. If the price per pound of sugar is the same for both packages, the equation below can be used to solve for y.
y+3/20 = y3/10
What is the value, in dollars, of y?

We have \[\frac{y+3}{20}=\frac{y3}{10}\] multiply both sides by 20, can you do it @rebecca1233 ?
