Find the value of y.
$y\;\; +\;\; 6 \quad=\quad 13$

• 3

• 7

• 6

• 8

Use inverse operations to solve the equation for a variable.

Solution:
To solve the given equation for variable y, we use inverse operations.

Given equation:
y + 6 = 13

Now, subtract 6 from both sides and simplify.

y + 6 – 6  =  13 – 6

⇒          y  =   7

So, the value of y is 7.
