Question #11200149

# Need help with a quick math question?

**The question is 5(x+2y)=20 where x=2, y=?
Can that question be solved by doing this:
5(2+2y)=20 (I replaced X with 2)
5(4y)=20 (I added 2+2)
5â€¢4=20 (I multiplied)
1â€¢20=20 therefor Y is 1? (I dunno what I did here.)
I never done this kind of math before, so sorry if I got it wrong.
If I got it right ,which I highly doubt I did, why does Y=1?
