y=3

explanation:

8y-3=15+2y

subtract '2y' from both sides

(you can add, subtract, multiply or divide an equation with a number without affecting the solution )

8y-2y-3 = 15+2y-2y

it becomes

6y-3=15

now add 3 to both sides

6y-3+3=15+3

6y=18

divide both sides by 6

6y/6 = 18/6

y = 3

Good Luck.
