# Chapter 5 - Section 5.6 - Solving Equations Containing Decimals - Exercise Set: 72

y= -14.972

#### Work Step by Step

7.68y =-114.98496 $\frac{7.68y}{7.68}$=$\frac{-114.98496}{7.68}$ y=$\frac{-11498.496}{768}$ y= -14.972 Check Replace y with -14.972 7.68y =-114.98496 7.68(-14.972 )=-114.98496 -114.98496= -114.98496
