Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You wouldn't go from 3b8=7b > 3b=15b. It would be 3b  8 = 7b 3b 3b 8 = 4b Then divide. /4 /4 b = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[3/8y=1/16\]\[(8y)(16)(3/8y)=(1/16)(8y)(16)\]\[(16)(3)=(1)(8y)\]\[48=8y\]/8 /8\[6=y\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i can see how you solved it but i dont understand the second line quite well. how 8y and 16 play in that part

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use "The Granny Rule: Grannies are fair, what they give to one child they give to the other." Same in algebra, what you do to one side of the equation you do to the other. I multiplied both sides by 16 and 8y. On the left side the 8y's canceled out, on the right the 16's canceled out.
