`y/2` + 5=12

### 3 Answers | Add Yours

Solve `y/2 + 5 = 12`

Isolate y by subtracting 5 from each side first.

`y/2 + 5 - 5 = 12 - 5`

`y/2 + 0 = 7`

`y/2 = 7`

Multiply both sides by 2.

`2* y/2 = 7* 2`

`y = 14`

**The solution is y = 14.**

+ 5=12

y/2=12-5

y/2=7

y=7*2

y=14

y/2+5=12

y/2=12-5

=7

y =7*2

=14
