Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes good that gives you \[\frac{2}{3y} = 4\] now you want y by itself what you can do is multiply y to both sides and it cancels out \[\frac{2}{3y} *y = 4*y\] \[\frac{2}{3} = 4y\] Do you know what to do know to finish it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well look at the last part that I type you know y by itself. What can you do to take away that 4 from the y?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes but remember what you do to one side you also have to do it to the other side. So you have to divide to both sides by 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes it seems a little tricky but what you have is \[\frac{2}{3} * \frac{1}{4}= \frac{2}{12}\]
