To remove +7 from 2y+7, you use the inverse of adding 7, namely subtracting 7 from each side. The first step can be written as 2y+77 = 197 . The second step simplifies each side of the equation and is written as 2y = 12 . The third step uses the method 2y/2 = 12/2 to isolate the variable y on one side. The final step isolates the y by simplifying each side of the equation and is written as y = 6.  For equation 2y+7 = 19, the answer y=6 is the value of the variable y that satisfies the equation. To satisfy an equation means to make its left side value equal its right side value. When you check the answer y=6, the left side value of 2y+7 evaluates as 2(6)+7 which is 19. When you check the right side value of 2y+7 = 19, it is already 19 with no evaluation work needed.  The answer y=6 that satisfies the equation 2y+7 = 19 can be called the solution or root.  Similarly, a complete solution for solving an equation such as 3w8 = 22 to find the value of w is ... 3w8 = 22 3w8+8 = 22+8 3w = 30 3w/3 = 30/3 w = 10  Refresh/Reload the web page to start over again.
