solve: 2/3y-5+6y-49=$126

If 2 people raised $126, how much did the other 3 raise? 
 
What I have tried so far:
2/3y-5+6y-49=$126
 
2/3y+6y-5-49=$126
 
6 2/3y-(-54)=$126
 
....now stuck

I have a feeling you have not stated the problem very well.  I need more to go on.

(20/3)y - 54 = 126

Add 54 to both sides

(20/3)y = 180

Multiply both sides by 3/20

y = 27
