# How do you solve 8( y - 4) + 7= 7?

May 18, 2018

$\implies y = 4$

#### Explanation:

$8 \left(y - 4\right) + 7 = 7$

First we distribute $8$ into $y - 4$

$8 y - 8 \left(4\right) + 7 = 7$

Then we simplify

$8 y - 32 + 7 = 7$

$8 y - 25 = 7$

Now we add $25$ to both sides

$8 y = 32$

Dividing both sides by $8$

$\implies y = 4$
