90-yWhat is the complement of \(y\) in terms of \(y\)?

y = 6 + 3(90 - y)....This is your equation. We can now solve for y using algebra.Yes, so given this, and the problem statement, we may write:

\(\displaystyle y=3(90-y)+6\)

What do you get upon solving for \(y\)?

y = 6 + 270 - 3y

y = 276 - 3y

y + 3y = 276

4y = 276

y = 276/4

y = 69

Well done!y = 6 + 3(90 - y)....This is your equation. We can now solve for y using algebra.

y = 6 + 270 - 3y

y = 276 - 3y

y + 3y = 276
