To remove 2y from the right side 2y+19, you subtract 2y from each side. The first step can be written as 5y2y+7 = 2y2y+19 which yields the result 3y+7 = 19. The next step can be written as 3y+77 = 197 which simplifies to 3y = 12 . The final step uses the method 3y/3 = 12/3 to isolate the y on one side, giving the answer y = 4.  For equation 5y+7 = 2y+19, the answer y=4 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=4, the left side value of 5y+7 evaluates as 5(4)+7 which is 27. When you check the right side value of 2y+19, it evaluates as 2(4)+19 which is 27.  The answer y=4 that satisfies the equation 5y+7 = 2y+19 is the solution or root of the equation.  Similarly, a complete solution for solving an equation such as 7w8 = 4w+22 to find the value of w is ... 7w8 = 4w+22 7w4w8 = 4w4w+22 3w8 = 22 3w8+8 = 22+8 3w = 30 3w/3 = 30/3 w = 10  Refresh/Reload the web page to start over again.
