solve for y
amistre64
  • amistre64
3x-2y = -16 ; -3x -2y = -3x - 16 ; /-2 y = -3x/-2 -16/-2 y = (3/2)x +8

is y=(3/2)x+8 the answer?
amistre64
  • amistre64
when we have an equal sign in there that means that both saides are balanced; they weigh the same
amistre64
  • amistre64
we have to keep them balanced so whatever we do to one side we have to do to the other....right
amistre64
  • amistre64
how do we get y all by its little lonesome? first we have to -3x from it right?

can you walk me through the rest of the problem?
amistre64
  • amistre64
3x-3x -2y = -16-3x 0 -2y = -3x-16 -2y = -3x-16 do you agree?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
amistre64
  • amistre64
now we have a -2 stuck the the 'y'...and its stuck there by multiplication....we remove it by dividing. (-2/-2)y = (-3x/-2) -(16/-2) 1y = (3/2)x + 8 y = (3/2)x+8 ; do you agree?

  • amistre64
by doing albegraic techniques we simply change the way the problem looks; not the value of it...jus tthe shape of it
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes! so y equals (3/2)x+8?
amistre64
  • amistre64
unless you came to another conclsion without me...then yes, the final answer is the final answer :)
