Equations

**What is unknown?**

Value of the variable

**Reasoning:**

In an equation values of left-hand side (LHS) and right-hand side (RHS) are equal. The two sides of the equation are balanced. We perform mathematical operations so that the balance is not disturbed.

**Steps:**

Transposing \((- 8)\) to RHS, we get

\[\begin{align}14y &= {\rm{13 }} + {\rm{ 8 }}\\14y &= 21\end{align}\]

Now dividing both sides by \(14\):

\[\frac{{14y}}{{14}}\,\, = \,\,\frac{{21}}{{14}}\]

We get, \(y\) \(= 1.5\)
