we have to treat this like a normal equation where y-1/2= -5

y - 1/2

This gives us y-1/2 +1/2 = -5 +1/2

To do that we add 1/2 to both sides of the equation

what we want to do is get the y on its own so in order to do that we have to get the -1/2 on to the right hand side

so the final answer is y= -4.5 which we then simplify to y is less than or equal to -4.5
