First you want to figure out 196- 16.  That will give you 180.  Now divide 180 by 2, which is 90.  So the numbers in the parentheses have to add up to 90.  Now you want to add 7 and 5.  This will give you twelve.  Then subtract 12 from 90 to get 78.  78 divided by 3 will give you nine.  78 divided by 3 is 26, so y would be equal to 26.

solve your equation step-by-step. 2(3y+7+5)=196−16 Simplify both sides of the equation. 2(3y+7+5)=196−16 (2)(3y)+(2)(7)+(2)(5)=196+−16(Distribute) 6y+14+10=196+−16 (6y)+(14+10)=(196+−16)(Combine Like Terms) 6y+24=180 Subtract 24 from both sides. 6y+24−24=180−24 6y=156 Divide both sides by 6. 6y/6 = 156/6 y=26
