Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so now since 3y6 divided by 5 doesn't come out evenly you can multiply both sides by 5 instead, now what do you have?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0.....ok um let's focus on the right side, to get rid of /5 from the left you have to multiply everything on the right by 5, what do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2With equations like this you have to follow your order of operations. First parentheses, 3(y2)/5=13y therefore your have (3y6)/5=13y. Next you have Division, multiply both sides by 5 to cancel out the 5 on the left 5((3y6)/5)=(13y)5 this gives you 3y6=515y. Now we are ready for the last step of the order of operations before we start over, Add/Subbtract from both sides and it will look like this, 18y=11. we now have to start back from the top to get y by its self devide both sides by 18 to cancel, final answer y=11/18
