## greeneyes<3 4 years ago show steps for solving: 434+70y/6-5y=59 Thank you.

1. estudier

Multiply 59 by (6-5y)

2. greeneyes<3

434+70y=354-295y?

3. estudier

Right, so now get the y's on one side and the numbers on the other.

4. greeneyes<3

y =-20/91 ?

5. estudier

Hmm, gone a bit wrong there, I think...

6. greeneyes<3

434+70y= 354-295y minus the 354 on both sides. 80 +70y=-294y minus 70y on both sides.

7. estudier

-295y not -294 y

8. greeneyes<3

y= -16/73 ?

Watch out for the parenthesis. \[434+70y/6-5y=59\] is different from \[(434+70y/6)-5y=59\] which is different from \[434+(70y/6)-5y=59\] or\[434+(70y/6-5y)=59\] I know it's boring, but it's way better to write all the necessary parenthesis. For the \[(434+70y)/(6-5y)=59\] form, here it goes: \[434+70y=59*(6-5y)\]\[434+70y=(59*6) - (59*5y)\]\[434+70y=354 - 295y\]\[365y = -80\]\[y = -16/73\]\[y \approx -0,219\]

Thank you. It is very important with the parentheses, and that is a good answer! i'll give you a medal :) :D
