    IT means that u need to subtract 4 from 3/7 of y i.e

    3/7 of y = 3Y/7

    subtract 4 from it we get

    {(3Y/7)- 4}

    Hence the answer

    Try doing these style of problems one word at a time.

    4 less means we’re subtracting 4 from something

    3/7 of y is just 3/7*y



    is our expression

    The other answers are correct but they could have more explicitlyy answered your questions:

    The “of” essentially means that you are multiplying the fraction (three sevenths) and the variable (y).

    (3/7)*y – 4
