\[-y -\frac{1}{4(-2)}=-3\]

first step is to plug in -2 for x....

  • amistre64
we get: -y + (1/8) = -3 ; -(1/8) from each side to get -y = -3' 1/8 ; /-1 to both sides to get: y = 3' 1/8 = 25/8

if you -1/8 from both sides how are you getting -3 1/8 ?
amistre64
  • amistre64
-3 -(1/8) = -3' 1/8

if you owe someone 3 dollars and you owe the 1/8 more of a dollar the total you owe them is: 3' 1/8 dollars
