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:

Multiplying with \(1.5\)  both sides

\[\,\,\frac{y}{{1.5}} \times 1.5 = 1.6 \times 1.5\,\,\]

We get \(y = 2.4\)
