"$5$ times $y$" $\rightarrow 5y$, "$2$ more than $5$ times $y$" $\rightarrow 2+5y$, "$x$ is $2$ more than $5$ times $y$" $\rightarrow x=2+5y$ If $y=4$, we calculate x from the last equation, $x=2+5(4)=2+20=22.$ To evaluate the expression, replace x with $22$ and y with $4$: $\displaystyle \frac{x-y}{3}=\frac{22-4}{3}=\frac{18}{3}=6$
