# How do you solve y/6+12=10?

Jul 14, 2016

$y = - 12$

#### Explanation:

First we need to get the integers on one side of the equation:

$\frac{y}{6} + 12 - 12 = 10 - 12$

$\frac{y}{6} = - 2$

Now we need to multiply both sides of the equation by $6$ so that $y$ will be on its own:

$\left(\frac{y}{6}\right) 6 = \left(- 2\right) 6$

Therefore,

$y = - 12$
