# How do you solve y/9 + 5 =0?

Jun 7, 2018

$y = - 45$

#### Explanation:

As per the question, we have

$\frac{y}{9} + 5 = 0$

$\therefore \frac{y}{9} + 5 - 5 = 0 - 5$ ... [Subtract 5 from both sides ]

$\therefore \frac{y}{9} = - 5$

$\therefore \frac{y}{9} \times 9 = - 5 \times 9$ ... [Multiply 9 in both sides ]

$\therefore \frac{y}{\cancel{9}} \times \cancel{9} = - 45$

$\therefore y = - 45$
