## ChristineToTheRescue 3 years ago Attached... this one makes my brain hurt. D: How am I in Adv. Algebra 2?

1. jiji501

Haha, I'm in the same hole :)

2. saifoo.khan

Take pills maybe?

3. ChristineToTheRescue

$|y+1| = \frac{ y }{ 2 }$

4. ChristineToTheRescue

That's a good idea Saifoo :P

5. ChristineToTheRescue

><"' I have to get ride of the y's from both sides. Arrgh! Which one?! Multiply or subtract?! D:

7. ChristineToTheRescue

8. ChristineToTheRescue

9. saifoo.khan

Sure, it's a great idea.

10. robinfr93

then just multiply both the equations by 2 both on the left and right sides.. then take the constant terms on the right side and variable terms on the left and solve..

12. ChristineToTheRescue

OH! Blonde moment there...

13. saifoo.khan

14. ChristineToTheRescue

|dw:1347928576842:dw| Yes? No? :/ And then I distributive property..

15. saifoo.khan

17. ChristineToTheRescue

18. ChristineToTheRescue

and then...

19. alifaris26

and |dw:1347928705629:dw|

20. saifoo.khan

|dw:1347928744889:dw|

21. ChristineToTheRescue

So then the answer would be

22. ChristineToTheRescue

y=−2 or $y=-\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }$

23. ChristineToTheRescue

Right?
