Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes... lets "move" the 3x over by adding +3x to each side: 2y = 3x+8 now what can we do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes.. we can do that by "dividing" both sides by 2 right? will that help us?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes so . 2y = 3x + 8 y = 3x + 4 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0very close.... I see you divided 8 by 2 = 3; but we also need to divide 3x by 2...the number gets us a fraction. y = (3/2)x + 4 do you see that?
