### Subject: Algebra

Solve -27x - 3y - 30 = 0 for y.

We must solve this question for "y", meaning we must move everything that doesn't contain a "y" to the other side, using the opposite operation. Let's first move the -27x, by adding 27x to both sides. We are left with -3y -30 = 27x. Next let's move the -30, by adding 30. We get to -3y = 27x + 30. We cannot add 27x and 30 because they are not like terms. Next, we must "split" the -3 from the y, by doing the opposite of multiplying - dividing each term by -3. Our answer yields y = 9x + 10. Voila!
