get y by itself by 3y from both sides. Then subtract 17 from both sides, that gives you 7y=28 then divide both sides by 7 and you get 4.

3y+45=10y+17 4517=10y3y 28 = 7y y = 28/7 therefore y = 4

well you just go through the numbers for y such as y=1, y=2, y=3 and work out the probem untill you get your answer

FULL EXPLANATION AND ANSWER 3y+45=10y+17 Since 10y contains the variable to solve for, move it to the lefthand side of the equation by subtracting 10y from both sides. 3y+4510y=17 Since 3y and 10y are like terms, add 10y to 3y to get 7y. 7y+45=17 Since 45 does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the righthand side of the equation by subtracting 45 from both sides. 7y=45+17 Add 17 to 45 to get 28. 7y=28 Divide each term in the equation by 7. (7y)/(7)=(28)/(7) Simplify the lefthand side of the equation by canceling the common factors. y=(28)/(7) Simplify the righthand side of the equation by simplifying each term. y=4
