Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you want to check your work then plug your "Y" back in like 3.7(4)+ 45.5 = 4.7  6.5(4) 30.7=30.7 so you are right! @ChmE I'm pretty sure that just means make sure that you do not have any fractions or decimals left. That's why it says "clear".
