Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1get 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0FULL 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
