Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0With 2y/3 + 2 = 6 = 2y/3 = 4 = 2y = 12 y = 6 (appears to work with y in the numerator)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If 3y was in the denominator, y would equal 1/6. This was not given as a choice of answers. With 2y in the numerator, y would equal 6 which is one of the given solutions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hbrown, there was a much deeper reason why I asked whether or not the variable was in the numerator or denominator. I think you may have missed the point I was trying to make with the OP.
