# How do you solve for y in 5y - q = 20?

$y = \frac{q + 20}{5}$

#### Explanation:

We start from the given equation

$5 y - q = 20$

Transpose $q$ to the right of the equation

$5 y = 20 + q$

Divide both sides by 5

$\frac{5 y}{5} = \frac{20 + q}{5}$

$\frac{\cancel{5} y}{\cancel{5}} = \frac{20 + q}{5}$

$y = \frac{q + 20}{5}$

God bless....I hope the explanation is useful.
