# The value of y for which the expressions (y - 15) and (2y + 1) become equal is

(a) 0

(b) 16

(c) 8

(d) -16

**Solution:**

Let’s find the value of y for which the expressions (y - 15) and (2y + 1) become equal

(y - 15) = (2y + 1)

2y - y = -15 - 1

y = -16

Hence out of the four options, the correct option is (d) -16

**✦ Try This:** The value of y for which the expressions (y - 1) and (2y + 1) become equal is (a) 0, (b) 2, (c) 1, (d) -2

Here, (y - 1) = (2y + 1)

2y - y = -1 - 1

y = -2

Hence out of the four options, the correct option is (d) -2
