# Given 3/5y+2a=b, how do you solve for y?

Mar 11, 2018

$y = \frac{5}{3} \left(b - 2 a\right)$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{3}{5} y + 2 a = b$

$\rightarrow \frac{3}{5} y = b - 2 a$

$\rightarrow y = \frac{5}{3} \left(b - 2 a\right)$

you could expand this last version to
$y = \frac{5 b - 10 a}{3}$
but I'm not sure this is any clearer.
