Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

6/7y+1/6(y-7)=y+1/5

Multiply both sides by 42. 

36y+7(y-7)=42y+42/5

=>36y+7y-49=42y+42/5

=>43y-49=42y+42/5

=>43y-42y=49+42/5

=>y=(5*49+42)/5=(245+42)/5=287/5

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
