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, $$y$$ $$= 1.5$$
