    4x - y =8 The first step to isolate y is to subtract 4x from both sides of the equation. Can you do that?

    Can you please do the step that I gave previously. 4x - y =8 The first step to isolate y is to subtract 4x from both sides of the equation. Can you do that?

    Not really. Subtracting 4x from both sides gives: 4x - y - 4x = 8 - 4x ...............(1) Can you simplify the left hand side of (1)?

    We are looking at simplifying the left hand side of 4x - y - 4x = 8 - 4x ...............(1) If the terms on the left hand side are rearrangedas follows is the simplification clearer? (4x - 4x) - y = 8 - 4x Hint: What is 4x - 4x ?
