by doing 8 times y and 8 times 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
hey @dreamer05 its 8y-16=2y so,6y=16 y=8/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
how did you get 8/3?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
@quantun No giving away answers or doing others work for them
anonymous
  • anonymous
@dreamer05 since 6y=16 y=16/6.Divide by 2 both in numerator and denominator you will get 8/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
but there is no option for that, unless it can be reduced? right.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think you should check your question once again..:P
anonymous
  • anonymous
?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
@dreamer05 you're right
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah, i mean unless its -1 but I know that isn't right.. I am a little bit confused..
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Reduce the fraction 16/6 by 2 This is why you guide not give answers
anonymous
  • anonymous
8/3
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Is that one of your answer choices?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No,.. unless its 3. but that wouldn't make since.. would it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@Luigi0210 what''s wrong in guiding ?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
@quantun Nothing, I just don't think it's right for people do others work for them. And Yea qua was right, did you write that question right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I thought so, hold on.. 8^(y-2)=2y
anonymous
  • anonymous
my bad..
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
That's so much better xD
anonymous
  • anonymous
SORRRY.
anonymous
  • anonymous
is it 8^(y-2)=2^y??
anonymous
  • anonymous
u have posted it wrong again...
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Go easy on her :3
anonymous
  • anonymous
can you solve now?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
@dreamer05 Do you know how to start?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Not really. I tried.
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Well simple, get like bases.
anonymous
  • anonymous
8 and 2?
anonymous
  • anonymous
see 8 can be written as 2^3
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Change 8 so it has a base of 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
compare both sides
anonymous
  • anonymous
what does that mean?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yup, so now you have: \[2^{3(y-2)}=2^y\] Since the bases are the same, you can get rid of them and just solve: 3(y-2)=y
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it be, 3y-6=3y
anonymous
  • anonymous
R.H.S. will be 2y
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Where did that 3y come from on the right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry y
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
^
anonymous
  • anonymous
or not, idk i thought you were so suppose to add the 3 to the y. so its just 3y-6=y
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Now just solve for y..
anonymous
  • anonymous
-3
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Try again
anonymous
  • anonymous
so, just 3?
anonymous
  • anonymous
bring y to one side and 6 to other and sovle
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yup
anonymous
  • anonymous
2y=6
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
This took a bit longer than expect but hey, you got it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh I did.. its 3?
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
Yup
anonymous
  • anonymous
YAY. sorry i'm really really really bad at math...
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
No it's fine, I've dealt with you before missy ;P
anonymous
  • anonymous
I know lolol...
Luigi0210
  • Luigi0210
