1. ## Solving Linear equations

5(2y-5) = 3(y-1)

2. ah another linear equation, fortunatly I am quite good at these
again I will go through as best as I can.

5(2y-5)=3(y-1)
so now we have to use a technique where we multiply everything inside the brackets by the outside number so this is what happens.

10y-25=3y-3

now what I did is I went 5x2y=10y, 5x-5=-25, 3xy=3y, 3x-1=-3
so now

10y=3y-3+25
remember the 25 changes signs.

10y-3y=-3+25
then

7y=22
now we lastly divide so

y= 22/7 y=22
-
7
or y= 3.14286
hope that helps
