oh it should be -12y?
Jim766
  • Jim766
24y - 12 -2y = 18y + 12 simplify each side first
idily101
  • idily101
then subtract 12 from both sides
Jim766
  • Jim766
opps and -2 * -y = 2y 24y - 12 + 2y = 18y + 12
Jim766
  • Jim766
before that I would combine 24y and 2y on the left side
idily101
  • idily101
oh to equal 26y
Jim766
  • Jim766
right 26y - 12 = 18y + 12 now I would get rid of the smallest variable
idily101
  • idily101
then you would subtract 12?
idily101
  • idily101
or add 12
Jim766
  • Jim766
you could, but do you see how there is a variable on both sides?
Jim766
  • Jim766
I like to fix that first, you are trying to get the variable alone right?
Jim766
  • Jim766
but if you have a variable on both side, that is hard to do....so how would you get rid of the 18y? what is the opposite of + 18y
idily101
  • idily101
-18y
Jim766
  • Jim766
right! 26y - 12 = 18y + 12 -18y -18y
Jim766
  • Jim766
what is 26y - 18y
idily101
  • idily101
-8y on the left side
Jim766
  • Jim766
Good! 26y - 12 = 18y + 12 -18y -18y 8y -12 = 12 now get the y by itself what do you want to do?
idily101
  • idily101
divide by 8
Jim766
  • Jim766
you are going to need to divide by 8, but not yet... first get rid of the -12, what is the opposite of -12
idily101
  • idily101
you add im sorry algebra is sorta for me glad that you took ur time to help me
Jim766
  • Jim766
np right 8y -12 = 12 +12 =12 8y = 24 , now divide by 8 on both sides
idily101
  • idily101
to equal y=3
Jim766
  • Jim766
right! good job
