Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so after I move 3x (which is now 3x) to the side of the equation with 12 on it, do I divide by 3x on that side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so first you isolate the y to one side of the equation. But for this problem you would move the x variable to the right side to make the equation easier.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, do not divide by 3x. You've subtracted it from the left side to the right. You are done with the 3x. Now you want to isolate 'y'. But you have '2y'..so what should you do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then 2y = 4, So I divide 2 and 4 both by 2? y = 2 ?
