Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your first solution (\(4y + 16 = X\)) is the same as theirs, they just chose to leave the negative sign on the X. Your second solution has a slight sign error  you move the 16 over to the right and then the X to the left (here it is done with both their form of the equation and yours): \[\begin{align} 4y  16 &= x & 4y + 16 &= x \\4y + x &= 16 & 4y  x &= 16 \\x + 4y &= 16 & 4y + x &= 16 \end{align}\]
