This is your equation:
-3/y+24=6, solved parenthesis first;
y=1/6, you got it or need any further clarification
Further Clarification PLEASE
I know everything up to -3/y=-18
but how did you get to -1/y = -18/3 next?
would not the next step been -3/y (+3) = -18(=3) = (y = 21)
and how does then end turn to 1/6
sorry about this, This is the only math question i'am having problems with

Lets deal with this now,
Our objective is to get the value of y, not the value of 1/y;
As you know the rule in mathematics, if you divide anything by 1 the answer will be the same, for example if you divide -18 by 1 the answer will still be -18. I need to do this to simplify for you;
Now, according to the rule in mathematics, if we change sides to get the value of y, everything will be multiplied or divided because there is no (_, +) sign, so we get;
Again, our objective has still not been met, we get;
1/6=y, or y=1/6 THIS IS THE ANSWER
LET ME CLARIFY THE STEPS YOU WERE TAKING,
-3/y (+3) = -18(=3) = (y = 21)
On the left side, where did you get (+3) from and how did you end up with 21???
I would suggest you to study mathematics rules.
1. whenever we divide anything by 1 it remains the same
2. whenever we change sides, - becomes +, + becomes -
3. whenever we change sides for multiplication, / becomes X, X becomes /
