# How do you solve 14+7y=3y+14?

Dec 14, 2016

$y = 0$

#### Explanation:

Step 1) Isolate the $x$ terms on one side of the equation and the constants on the other side of the equation while keeping the equation balanced:

$14 - 14 + 7 y - 3 y = 3 y - 3 y + 14 - 14$

$0 + 7 y - 3 y = 0 + 14 - 14$

$7 y - 3 y = 14 - 14$

Step 2) Combine like terms:

$\left(7 - 3\right) y = 0$

$4 y = 0$

Step 3) Solve for $y$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$\frac{4 y}{4} = \frac{0}{4}$

$\frac{\cancel{4} y}{\cancel{4}} = 0$

$y = 0$
