y = $\frac{18}{25}$

Work Step by Step

$-\frac{5}{6}y = -\frac{3}{5}$ Multiply each side by the reciprocal of the variable's coefficient, $-\frac{6}{5}$: $(-\frac{6}{5})(-\frac{5}{6}y) = (-\frac{3}{5})(-\frac{6}{5})$ Simplify: y = $\frac{18}{25}$ Check with substitution: $-\frac{5}{6}(\frac{18}{25}) = -\frac{3}{5}$ $-\frac{3}{5} = -\frac{3}{5}$
