Solve the following equation for y
3x*2y = 10

Simplify the left side by multiplying all of the constants:
3x*2y = (3 x 2)x*y
3x*2y = 6x*y

Divide each side of the equation by 6x to isolate y
6x*y
6x
=
10
6x

Cancelling the 6x on the right side, we get:
y =10
6x

Our constants can be simplified using our greatest common factor calculator which gives us 2
Simplifying top and bottom, we get:
y =5
