    First things first....add the y's on the left hand side of the equal sign \[(4y+8y)-16=-4\] I'm putting parenthesis to point out that I want you to add the y's first and leave the rest alone for now.

    almost :) you would add 16 take a look... 12y (- 16 +16)= -4+16 so (-16+16) is zero correct?
