5(0.3) + 2y = 20

<h2>Answer: Y = 9.25.</h2><h2>~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~</h2><h2 />

| 5(0.3) + 2y = 20

| Multiply 5 and 0.3 to get 1.5

\/

1.5 + 2y = 20

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We <em>subtract 1.5</em> from <u>both sides</u>.

2y = 20 - 1.5

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Subtract 1.5 from 20 to get 18.5.

2y = 18.5

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Divide both sides by 2.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Expand = 9.25 by multiplying both numerator and the denominator by 10.
