First solve the equation for y Then find the value of y for the given value of x.

**8xy + 7y + 2 = 12 ; x = -3 solve for y**

**First solve the equation for y, then find the value of y for the given value of x.**

**Solve the equation for y**

8xy + 7y + 2 = 12

8xy + 7y = 12-2

8xy + 7y = 10

y(8x + 7) = 10

y = 10/(8x+7)

**Find the value of y for the given value of x.**

y = 10/(8x+7)

y = 10/ (8(-3) +7)

y = 10/ (-24+7)

y = 10/-17

**y = - (10/17)**
