#### Answer

The solution is 5

#### Work Step by Step

6y -8 =3y+7 Add 8 to both sides
6y -8+8 =3y+7+8
6y=3y+15 Subtract 3y from both sides
6y-3y=3y+15 -3y
3y =15 Divide by 3 on both sides
$\frac{3y}{3}$=$\frac{15}{3}$
y=5
The solution is 5
Check
6y -8=3y+7
6$\times$5 -8=3$\times$5+7 Replace x with 5
30-8=15+7
22=22
