use the same technique as your other equations. You can start by subtracting 8 from both sides. I will help you along the way, but try to work through it.

ok so 7x-1=3y+8 -8 -8 -1x-1=3y

8 is not multiplied by x, so you cannot subtract it from 7x. It would instead be 7x-1-8=7x-9. Make sense?

is the answer: y=7x-3? or y=7x-9?
anonymous
  • anonymous
The first one is closest, but you forgot to divide all parts by 3... 7x-9=3y You have to divide all of it: (7x-9)/3

so y=7/3x-3?
