Answer:

Follow the methods of a simple linear equation.
#v=5#

Explanation:

Like with all linear equations, the goal is to get all variables (in this case #v#) on one side and all the constants on the other.

Therefore to solve literally move over the #2# by adding it to #13#

#3v-2=13#
#3v=15#
#v=5#
