# How do you solve 2y-(5y+1)=1?

Nov 3, 2017

By arranging the equation.

#### Explanation:

$2 y - 5 y - 1 = 1$

When you rewrite down after combining y and numbers:

$- 3 y = 1 + 1$

$- 3 y = 2$

$y = - \frac{2}{3}$

the solution is $y = - \frac{2}{3}$

#### Explanation:

the given equation is $2 y - \left(5 y + 1\right) = 1$ $\Rightarrow 2 y - 5 y - 1 = 1$
$\Rightarrow - 3 y = 2$ $\Rightarrow y = - \frac{2}{3}$
