# How do you solve 7y+5 = 6y+11?

May 23, 2018

$y = 6$

#### Explanation:

1) Get the variables to one side, do this by subtracting $6 y$ from both sides.
2) you now have $y + 5 = 11$
3) now simplify by subtracting $5$ from each side
4) $y = 6$

$y = 6$

#### Explanation:

$7 y + 5 = 6 y + 11$

First, subtract $\textcolor{b l u e}{6} y$ from both sides of the equation:
$7 y + 5 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{- \quad 6 y} = 6 y + 11 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{- \quad 6 y}$

$y + 5 = 11$

Now subtract $\textcolor{b l u e}{5}$ from both sides:
$y + 5 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{- \quad 5} = 11 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{- \quad 5}$

Therefore,
$y = 6$

Hope this helps!
