Step 1: Recall what is a variable

Step 2: Recall what are terms

Step 3: Recall what are like terms

Step 4: Recall how to add or subtract two like terms

Step 5

Solve for y

Solve for y by isolating the y variable

Move the x variable to the right side

-y = -2y - 3x

Then group the y variables together

- y + 2y = -3x

y = -3x
