Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since w is only on the right side multiplied by a factor, divide both sides by that factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now try to factor the numerator on the left. First divide it by three. The factor you divided by 3x + 6y can also be factored. A 3 comes out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have 6x^2. I asked you if it's 6y^2, and you say you're sure it's 6y. Which is it: 6x^2 6y^2 6y
