    Answer:

    a.  -44.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    y/4 + 8 = -3

    Subtract 8 from both sides:

    y/4 = -3 – 8

    y/4 = -11

    Now multiply both sides by 4:

    y = 4 * -11 = -44 (answer).

    Answer:

    \large\boxed{a.\ -44}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    \dfrac{y}{4}+8=-3\qquad\text{subtract 8 from both sides}\\\\\dfrac{y}{4}+8-8=-3-8\\\\\dfrac{y}{4}=-11\qquad\text{multiply both sides by 4}\\\\4\!\!\!\!\diagup^1\cdot\dfrac{y}{4\!\!\!\!\diagup_1}=(4)(-11)\\\\y=-44
