TOP-SECRET(ok maybe not) MISSION: SOLVE FOR Y!!

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
