You're probably right that I should show my work. Here it is:
(6)(1/2)=3 because 1/2 of 6 is 3
(6)[(-2/3)(y)]=-4y because -2/3 of 6=-4 and you have a y associated with it.
Therefore, this problem simplifies to 3-4y.
Hopefully, This helps you understand how the answer was arrived at.

but isnt the answer supoose to be a fraction

- gw2011

No, the answer is not supposed to be a fraction because the fractions actually cancel as you can see from the above work I showed. Do you now understand how this worked?

- cindy

im still confuse,,sorry

- gw2011

6*1/2=6/2=3
6*2/3=12/3=4 but 2/3 is a negative so 4 becomes -4 but again there is a y associated with -2/3 so -4 becomes -4y.
Does this help?
