Answer

$y=\dfrac{49}{9}$

Work Step by Step

Using the properties of equality, the solution to the given equation, $ \dfrac{9}{10}y-\dfrac{7}{10}=\dfrac{21}{5} $, is \begin{array}{l} 10\left(\dfrac{9}{10}y-\dfrac{7}{10}\right)=\dfrac{21}{5}(10) \\\\ 1(9y)-1(7)=21(2) \\\\ 9y-7=42 \\\\ 9y=42+7 \\\\ 9y=49 \\\\ y=\dfrac{49}{9} .\end{array}
