 Question 424401: -15(y-2)-3=-5y-11(3y+7) -15y-2-3=-5y-33y+7 -15y+5= -38y+7 -53y+12 help!!! Is any of what I did correct?Answer by nerdybill(6959)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You're not "distributing" correctly... . -15(y-2)-3=-5y-11(3y+7) distributing the -15 to each term inside the parenthesis (left): -15y+30-3=-5y-11(3y+7) distributing the -11 to each term inside the parenthesis (right): -15y+30-3=-5y-33y-77 -15y+27=-28y-77 13y+27=-77 13y=-104 y = -104/13 y = -8
