$y=\frac{1}{3}x-\frac{14}{3}$
We are trying to isolate $y$ in the equation $1.5x-4.5y=21$ We subtract $1.5x$ from each side of the equation: $-4.5y=-1.5x+21$ We divide by $-4.5$ on each side of the equation: $y=\frac{-1.5}{-4.5}x+\frac{21}{-4.5}$ We simplify the fractions: $y=\frac{1}{3}x-\frac{14}{3}$
