#### Answer

6 is a solution of the given equation

#### Work Step by Step

The given number is a solution if it satisfies the given equation.
Substitute $6$ to $y$ to obtain:
$2y+7=4y-5
\\2(6)+7 = 4(6)-5
\\12+7 = 24-5
\\19=19$
The result is a true statement
Thus, $6$ is a solution of the given equation.
