1-120.

Solve each equation for y.

1. $2x + 3\left(y + 2\right) = 6\left(x − 5\right)$

Distribute and simplify.

1. $\frac { 6 x + 1 } { y } = 6$

y cannot be equal to 0. Why?

$y = x + \frac{1}{6}$

Why is this true?

$x\neq -\frac{1}{6}$

Then $y =$0 and you would have division by $0$ or undefined.
