## rebecca1233 A 20−pound bag of sugar costs (y + 3) dollars while a 10−pound package costs (y − 3) dollars. If the price per pound of sugar is the same for both packages, the equation below can be used to solve for y. y+3/20 = y-3/10 What is the value, in dollars, of y? one year ago one year ago

1. ash2326

We have $\frac{y+3}{20}=\frac{y-3}{10}$ multiply both sides by 20, can you do it @rebecca1233 ?

2. rebecca1233

which side 10*20?

3. ash2326

$20\times \frac{y+3}{20}=\frac{y-3}{10}\times 20$

4. ash2326

could you simplify this?

5. rebecca1233
