$y=-50$
We need to get the y alone. Thus, we cancel out the addition by subtracting 2 on both sides. This leaves us with the equation $y/5=-10$. In order to cancel out division, we use multiplication, so we multiply both sides by 5 to get that $y=-50$. We plug -50 in for y and confirm that our answer is, indeed, correct.
