Answer

y = $\frac{5}{14}$

Work Step by Step

y - $\frac{4}{7}$ = - $\frac{3}{14}$ y $\times$ $\frac{14}{14}$ - $\frac{4}{7}$ $\times$ $\frac{2}{2}$ = - $\frac{3}{14}$ $\frac{14y}{14}$ - $\frac{8}{14}$ = - $\frac{3}{14}$ $\frac{14y}{14}$ - $\frac{8}{14}$ + $\frac{8}{14}$ = - $\frac{3}{14}$ + $\frac{8}{14}$ $\frac{14y}{14}$ = $\frac{5}{14}$ y = $\frac{5}{14}$
