Question

# Solve the equation : 2y/3 - 2/5 = 5

Hint:

### An equation in which highest power of any variable is always 1 is known as a Linear equation.

We will simplify the given equation and find the value of y.

## The correct answer is: Value of y for the given equation is 81/10 or 8.1

### Step-by-step solution:-

2y/3 - 2/5 = 5

∴ 2y/3 = 5 + 2/5 …................................................ (Taking all constants together)

∴ 2y/3 = 25/5 + 2/5 …........................................... (Making denominators same on RHS)

∴ 2y/3 = (25+2)/5

∴ 2y/3 = 27/5

∴ y = 27/5 × 3/2 ............................................. (Multiplying both sides by 3/2)

∴ y = 81/10

∴ y = 8.1

Final Answer:-

∴ Value of y for the given equation is 81/10 or 8.1.
