Plan:

#1: Multiply by 3y on both sides.

. Result: 2 = 18y.

. #2: Divide by 18 on both sides.

. Result: y = 2/18.

. #3: SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY!! Bombs away, missiles away, simplify away!!

. #4: y = 1/9.

. Hope this helps!!

. Any questions, ask away!!

Solutions

1) Simplify 23 / y to 2y / 3

2y / 3 = 6

2) Multiply both sides by 3

2y = 6 × 3

3) Simplify 6×3 to 18

2y=18

4) Divide both sides by 2 so we can isolate "Y".

y=18 ÷ 2

5) Simplify 18 ÷ 2 to 9

y=9
