    No problem once you get "y" you can plug it back in to see if you got the right answer they should equal each other.

    I was wrong. The y's cancel out, so that means that 45=0 which is FALSE so the answer is, NO SOLUTION.

    @BurrDaBoss 's mistake comes from not distributing correctly.

    5(y+6)=5(y-3) 5y+30=5y-15 add 15 to both sides 5y+45=5y subtract 5y from both sides 45 = 0 impossible no solution @kelsey1 was right
