y=8 because 7x8=56, then add 5 to get 61

What you do to one side of equal sign you must do to both

subtract 5 (usually add and subtract first!)

56 = 7y

Divide by 7

8 = y

It is an equation and if 61 = 5+7y then the value of y = 8

It's an equation.

Perhaps you want to know the solution to the equation. If so,

61 = 5 + 7y

61 - 5 = 5 - 5 + 7y

56 = 7y

56/7 = 7y/7

8 = y
