$y = 3$

#### Explanation:

$90 = 10 \left(2 y + 3\right) \rightarrow$ You could evaluate using the distributive property or you could divide each side by $10$

$9 = 2 y + 3$

$2 y = 6$

$y = 3$

Using the distributive property:

$90 = 10 \cdot 2 y + 10 \cdot 3$

$90 = 20 y + 30$

$20 y = 60$

$y = 3$
