#### Explanation:

There are 2 possible solutions.

#-3-3y=color(red)(+-)(2y+1)#

#color(blue)"First solution"#

#-3-3y=2y+1#

#rArr-5y=4rArry=-4/5#

#color(blue)"Second solution"#

#-3-3y=-2y-1#

#rArr-y=2rArry=-2#

#color(blue)"As a check"# Substitute these values into the equation and if left side is equal to right side then they are the solutions.

#"left side "=|-3+12/5|=|-3/5|=3/5#

#"right side " =|-8/5+1|=|-3/5|=3/5#

#"left side " =|-3+6|==|3|=3#

#"right side " =|-4+1|=|-3|=3#
