Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04y from each side; then factor out a y and see which y values make it equal zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04y = 12y^2 ; 4y 0 = 12y^2 4y ; factor out 4y 0 = 4y(3y  1) ; y = 0 or 1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0^2 means squared right that's why i typed it like that because 12y squared

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can also /4y if you want 1 = 3y ; y=1/3 but your missing something because... 4y CAN be a zero, which this way does not allow for

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if it can be zero; stay away from division

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[4y=12y^2\]\[4y4y=4y^24y\]\[0=4y^24y\]\[4(y^2y)=0\]\[4(y(y+1))=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you know it can never be zero; then division is fine ;)
