# Solve and Check Result: 2y + 5by3 = 26by3 - Y - Mathematics

Solve and check result: 2y + 5/3 = 26/3 - y

#### Solution

2y + 5/3 = 26/3 - y

Transposing y to L.H.S and 5/3 to R.H.S, we obtain

2y + y = 26/3 - 5/3

3y = 21/3 = 7

Dividing both sides by 3, we obtain

y = 7/3

L.H.S =  2y + 5/3 = 2 xx 7/3 + 5/3 = 14/3 + 5/3 = 19/3

R.H.S = 26/3 - y = 26/3 - 7/3 = 19/3

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

Hence, the result obtained above is correct.
