Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation


Solve for y

2y - 5 = 3y - 15

Group variables

Group our variables 2y and 3y
subtract 3y from both sides

2y - 5 - 3y = 3y - 15 - 3y

Cancel 3y on the right side:

-y - 5 = -15

Group constants

Group our constants -5 and -15.
add 5 to both sides

-y - 5 + 5 = -15 + 5

Cancel 5 on the left side:

-y = -10

Divide each side of the equation by -1


y = 10
