```Simplifying
(y + 9)(y + -2) = 4y

Reorder the terms:
(9 + y)(y + -2) = 4y

Reorder the terms:
(9 + y)(-2 + y) = 4y

Multiply (9 + y) * (-2 + y)
(9(-2 + y) + y(-2 + y)) = 4y
((-2 * 9 + y * 9) + y(-2 + y)) = 4y
((-18 + 9y) + y(-2 + y)) = 4y
(-18 + 9y + (-2 * y + y * y)) = 4y
(-18 + 9y + (-2y + y2)) = 4y

Combine like terms: 9y + -2y = 7y
(-18 + 7y + y2) = 4y

Solving
-18 + 7y + y2 = 4y

Solving for variable 'y'.

Reorder the terms:
-18 + 7y + -4y + y2 = 4y + -4y

Combine like terms: 7y + -4y = 3y
-18 + 3y + y2 = 4y + -4y

Combine like terms: 4y + -4y = 0
-18 + 3y + y2 = 0

Factor a trinomial.
(-6 + -1y)(3 + -1y) = 0

Subproblem 1Set the factor '(-6 + -1y)' equal to zero and attempt to solve:

Simplifying
-6 + -1y = 0

Solving
-6 + -1y = 0

Move all terms containing y to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '6' to each side of the equation.
-6 + 6 + -1y = 0 + 6

Combine like terms: -6 + 6 = 0
0 + -1y = 0 + 6
-1y = 0 + 6

Combine like terms: 0 + 6 = 6
-1y = 6

Divide each side by '-1'.
y = -6

Simplifying
y = -6
Subproblem 2Set the factor '(3 + -1y)' equal to zero and attempt to solve:

Simplifying
3 + -1y = 0

Solving
3 + -1y = 0

Move all terms containing y to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '-3' to each side of the equation.
3 + -3 + -1y = 0 + -3

Combine like terms: 3 + -3 = 0
0 + -1y = 0 + -3
-1y = 0 + -3

Combine like terms: 0 + -3 = -3
-1y = -3

Divide each side by '-1'.
y = 3

Simplifying
y = 3Solutiony = {-6, 3}```
