What are you solving for? Answer: y!

what is in the way if the y being "alone"? Answer: the factor 5 and the term 27!

what is the 27 doing to the y? Answer: adding!

what is the opposite of adding 27? Answer: subtracting 27!

what is the 5 doing to the y? Answer: multiplying!

what is the opposite of multiplying By 5? Answer: diving by 5!

therefore, subtract both sides by 27 and then divide both sides by 5.

Problem: you never wrote the other side of the equation so I cannot solve.

If you wanted the equation evaluated I will have to know the value of y.
