## Text Solution

**What is known?**

Equation

**What is unknown?**

Value of the variable

**Reasoning:**

Multiple both sides by the L.C.M of the denominators to get rid of fractional number. Now transpose variables to one side and constant to another side.

**Steps:**

On multiplying both sides by \(5(2-6 y),\) we obtain

\[\begin{align} 5\left( 3\text{ }y+4 \right)&=-2\left( 2-6\text{ }y \right) \\15y+20&=-4+12\text{ }y \\15y-12y&=-4-20 \\3\,y&=-24 \\y &=-8\end{align}\]
