Does that make sense? So he took the 5y minus the 8y and he got 12y

add 6 on both the side as the result on hand +66 would be cancel and other side +6+6 add to give 12

i see where you got the 12 in that equation. my next one has two different numbers on each end where the 6 would have been . 4a10=3a1

same here as we done in previous one 4a10=3a1 add +10 on the sides we get' 4a10+10=3a1+10 now' 10+10=0 nd 1+10=9 4a=3a+9 again'subtract 3a on both sides 4a3a=3a3a+9 we get' a=9 becoz 3a3a=0

4a10=3a1 The idea is to get 'a' by itself. First, let's put the "10" and the "1" numbers on the same side. so, add 10 to both sides. 4a10 = 3a1 +10 +10 which gives 4a= 3a1+10 simplified to: 4a= 3a+9 Now we want to moves the a's to the same side, but not the one that we moved the 10 to. 4a= 3a+9 So, let's subtract 3a from both sides: 4a= 3a+9 3a 3a 4a  3a = 9 simplifies to a = 9 sorry, I type a little slow :)

mysesshouBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes, that works. Good to show where the 3a cancels and the 10 cancels

mysesshouBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i'll assume it is 3 6y17=3y add 17 6y=3y+17 6y=y+14 ok so far?

then, add y 6y+y=14 7y = 14 y=2 Blossom_red's method works too :)

You can check your work by plugging the number you end up with back into the equation Substitute the r for the 2: 2r+10=182r 2(2)+10=182(2) 4+10=184 14=14 = true, so it was right :) Sure ! :)
