How to solve this problem for linear equations?

I have to find out whether 3y+2=0 is a linear equation, which I've confirmed, then write it in standard form, which I'm having some trouble with. I don't understand how I can do the problem with no 'x'. Can somebody help by explaining it step by step? (I'm kinda dull. -w-)

Thanks~ :3

Update:

On second thought, I'm having trouble with all kinds of linear equation problems. It'd be great if somebody could explain this one step by step as well?

3/5x-2/5y=5

Thanks... again. c:

    you solve the same way but substitute 'y' for 'x'.

    3y+2=0

    -2 -2

    3y/3=-2/3

    y=-2/3
