$y=-2$
We need to get the y alone, so we cancel out the addition by subtracting 1.3 on both sides. This leaves us with the equation $3y=-6$. We cancel out multiplication by using division, so we divide both sides of the equation by 3 to get that $y=-2$. We plug -2 in for y and confirm that our answer is, indeed, correct.
