## anonymous one year ago What is the value of y in the equation 2(3y + 7 + 5) = 196 − 16?

Hi there When you see parenthese you always want to do those first So start by distrbiuting the 2

2. anonymous

well also u should also simplify the right

3. anonymous

2(3y+7+5) = 6y + 24 6y + 24 = 180 6y = 156 y = 26

4. pooja195

$\huge~\rm(2)(3y)+(2)(7)+(2)(5)$
