    I do but i end up getting it wrong, I have the answer in the back of the book but cant get it rite. Okay this is what im doin : x-2y=6, Then i subtrat from both side Which gives me -2y=6-x, Then i dive all of it by -2 which then gives me -3+1/2.. So what am i doing wrong..

    when you divide -2 from -2y=6-x you get y= -3- (-X/2) expand the negative to (x/2) making it a positive and rearange so positive is in front of the negative three

    Wait doesnt the -2 become a positive 2, because you need to get rid of the -2, rite.

    no you need to move the negative two from the y side to the x side
