I think it's A because you divide on both sides, but can someone help me out? I'll fan/medal
The steps below show the incomplete solution to find the value of y for the equation 6y − 3y − 5 = −3 + 23:
Step 1: 6y − 3y − 5 = −3 + 23
Step 2: 6y − 3y − 5 = 20
Step 3: 3y − 5 = 20
Which of these is most likely the next step?
3y = 4
3y = 15
3y = 25
3y = 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Step 3: 3y − 5 = 20 the next step would be to "move" the 5 to the right hand side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@phi Mhm, I did that, so I divide 20 / 5 right? Because it's a multiplication problem with 3y... or do I add?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you would add +5 to both sides 3y − 5 +5 = 20+5 if you divide each side by 5 you would get this \[ \frac{3y5}{5}= \frac{20}{5} \\ \frac{3y5}{5}= 4\] which does not look promising...
