    Rearrange for y. Theres no need for factorising, it is linear.

    Unless you've made a typo, 0.5y has incorrectly changed to -0.5y from the first to the second line of your working.

    I agree with NotNotBatman ... just keep it up Whenever I do those sorts of things, I just generally mess around, play with it, etc., until I get the answer. If it's hard, it may take up a lot of paper lol. But this question doesn't look too hard; just do a bit of dividing and tidying it up and all, and you should get the answer

    Solve for the unknown, in which case since there's no ² anywhere you'll be fine just rearranging with just y on one side
