Let us proceed to solve the equation 2x - 3y = 6 We take the term 3y to the right-hand side of the equation which gives 2x = 6 + 3y Now we bring 6 to the left side of the equation 2x - 6 = 3y And lastly, we bring the 3 also to the other side of the equation thus dividing the term (2x-6) by 3 which ultimately gives us the value of y. (2x-6)/3=y

Substract 2x from both sides of the equation.
3y=62x
Divide each term by -3 and simplify.
Divide each term in -3y=6-2x by -3
3y3=63+2x3
Cancel the common factor of -3
y=63+2x3
Simplify each term.
y=2+2x3
