#### Explanation:

**Add**#6x# to both sides

**Divide by**#5#

OR

**Notes:**

- Both of those answers are right, because of the Commutative Property of Addition
- You could divide and then add if you want
- You could also subtract
#5y# form both sides, but then you would have to subtract#10# , divide by#5# , and multiply the whole equation by#-1# . I just thought the way I showed was faster.
