Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the parenthesis right after the 4 means that you multiply 4 by the whole equation.....meaning you now have 4y + 8 = 32 Then you move the 8 to the other side by subtracting the 8 from both sides. 4y + 8  8 = 32  8 Simplify and it gives you 4y = 24 Now you divide 4 by both sides: 4y/4 = 24/4 Simplify again and you get y = 6 If this helped please medal and become fan! :)
