please help. i need help with me algebra homework. if you help me thanks for ya help professor!:D

-4y - (5y + 6) = -7y + 3

Distribute the negative sign into the terms inside the parentheses on the left hand side:

-4y + (**-**5y **-** 6) = -7y + 3

-4y + -5y + -6 = -7y + 3

**-4y - 5y** - 6 = -7y + 3

Combine like terms in left hand side of equation:

**-9y - 6 = -7y + 3**

Isolate the unknown variable (y) to one side of the equation by adding 7y to both sides of equation then adding 6 to both sides of the equation:

-9y **+ 7y** - 6 = -7y **+ 7y** + 3

**-2y - 6 = 3**

-2y - 6 **+ 6** = 3 **+ 6**

** -2y = 9**

Divide both sides by -2 to solve for y:

-2y**/-2** = 9**/-2**

** y = -9/2 **
