#### Explanation:

Distribute the bracket, collect terms in y on the left side of the equation and numeric values on the right side.

#rArr-5y+30+10y=0# simplify left side by collecting like terms.

#rArr5y+30=0# subtract 30 from both sides.

#5ycancel(+30)cancel(-30)=0-30#

#rArr5y=-30# To solve for y, divide both sides by 5

#(cancel(5) y)/cancel(5)=(-30)/5#

#rArry=-6" is the solution"#
