# Solve the following equations: 3y + 4 / 2 - 6y = - 2/5

**Solution:**

An equation is a mathematical statement with an 'equal to' symbol between two algebraic expressions that have equal values.

3y + 4 / 2 - 6y = - 2/5

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

⇒ 5(3y + 4) = - 2(2 - 6 y)

⇒ 15y + 20 = - 4 + 12y [Using distributive property]

⇒ 15y - 12y = - 4 - 20

⇒ 3y = - 24

Hence, y = - 8
