# In Exercises 21 to 32, solve each equation. 3 y = − 21 − 4 y

To determine

To solve:

The given equation.

Explanation

Properties of equation solving:

1) Addition Property of Equality (if a=b, then a+c=b+c): An equivalent equation results when the same number is added to each side of an equation.

2) Subtraction Property of Equality (if a=b, then ac=bc): An equivalent equation results when the same number is subtracted from each side of an equation.

3) Multiplication Property of Equality (if a=b, then ac=bc for c0): An equivalent equation results when each side of an equation is multiplied by the same nonzero number.

4) Division Property of Equality (if a=b, then ac=bc for c0): An equivalent equation results when each side of an equation is divided by the same nonzero number.

Calculation:

Given: 3y=214y

First we add 4y to both sides
