__Correct____ ____question____:__

In 16 - 2(3y+5) = 4(y-2), find the value of y.

__Required____ ____answer____:__

16 - 2(3y+5) = 4(y-2)

16-6y-10 = 4y-8

16-10-6y = 4y-8

6-6y = 4y-8

6+8 = 4y+6y

14 = 10y

**1****.****4**** ****=**** ****y**** **---> This is the value of y.

__Verification____:__

By putting the value of y as 1.4 in the equation,

16 - 2(3×1.4+5) = 4(1.4-2)

16 - 2(4.2+5) = 4×(-0.6)

16 - 2×9.2 = -2.4

16-18.4 = -2.4

-2.4 = -2.4

**Hence**** ****Verified****!**

__Final____ ____answer____:__

Value of y is **1****.****4****.**
